It is expected that the cost of flying between the United Arab Emirates and Pakistan will decrease as a result of the announcement made by Fly Jinnah, the low-cost carrier of Pakistan, that it will begin operations to connect the two nations.
On February 17, Fly Jinnah will begin offering double daily direct flights between Islamabad and Sharjah. This will provide Pakistani nationals living in the United Arab Emirates with an additional option to select from when looking for a flight back to their home country.
Airline ticket prices
When the website of the airline was reviewed on Friday, it displayed a roundtrip cost of Dh1,018. The flight would depart from Sharjah to Islamabad on February 17 and return on February 27. When compared to the prices of some of the other airlines that operate on the same routes on those days, this is approximately Dh100 less expensive.
Low cost airline
Passengers are only allowed to bring 10 kilogrammes of hand baggage on board because it is a low-cost airline. They will, however, be responsible for paying for any additional baggage as well as meals.
The South Asian route, which has not been very well served, will see an increase in competition as a result of this. As a result, airfares are on the higher side due to demand exceeding supply, particularly during peak seasons.
Approximately 1.7 million Pakistani nationals are currently residing and working in the United Arab Emirates. At the United Arab Emirates, they are the second largest community.
Five local locations serve Fly Wing
There are currently five domestic locations that Fly Jinnah serves, and they are Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar, and Quetta.
At the moment, direct flights between the United Arab Emirates and Pakistan are operated by Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), Airblue, Emirates of Dubai, Air Arabia of Sharjah, and Etihad Airways of Abu Dhabi.
The existing fleet of Fly Jinnah aircraft was expanded with the addition of two new Airbus A320 aircraft, bringing the total number of aircraft to five planes. A free in-flight streaming service known as "SkyTime" is also included aboard the aircraft. This service gives passengers the ability to stream a broad variety of entertainment directly to their electronic devices within the aircraft.
