Bad news for all those travelling after November 1.

The Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority has increased its embarkation fees and airport charges which means that plane tickets will now become more expensive. The new prices will be effective from November 1.

According to reports, the CAA will charge Rs 2,800 as airport charges for passengers travelling abroad while foreign nationals will pay $20 each (Rs 3,127).


The CAA has also said the charges will apply to all airports. Previously, each airport had set its own charges.

Meanwhile, the embarkation fee for economy and business class passengers has been increased to Rs 2,000 and Rs 3,000 respectively.

The new fees will be imposed from November 1, regardless of advanced bookings.

As part of the new aviation policy, aeronautical charges for international flights have also been increased by 10% and landing charges during peak hours by 25%.
