ISLAMABAD: Though that a recent relief was given to the passengers flying Pakistan International Airline (PIA), it has just reached us that Hajj expenditures are likely to increase by twenty to twenty two thousand rupees against previous fare since the government is considering a proposal to increase Hajj expenses in 2016.

Pakistan International Airline, amid crisis and demonstration against its privatization, slashed their fares by 50 percent. The news is suppose to bring back the lost revenue and passengers to the national carrier.
