Currently, PIA is operating two weekly flights on Islamabad-Beijing-Islamabad and Islamabad-Chengdu-Islamabad routes on Sunday and Wednesday, respectively.
Pakistani students and other passengers planning to travel to China to join their studies at Chinese educational institutions could take benefit from the new fare.
Remember that a large number of Pakistani students enrolled in Chinese universities could not return to China after the Covid-19 travel restrictions. After lifting all travel restrictions, they are planning to come back to China to join off-line classes as the Chinese authorities have allowed them to return.
Talking to the media, a Pakistani student, said that the new decreased fare would greatly facilitate Pakistani students who want to come back and join their offline education.
Last year in December, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) announced discounted fares for passengers traveling on the Beijing-Islamabad routes.
The national airline had also announced a cut in the existing fare of the Beijing-Islamabad-Beijing round trip, setting the new price at RMB 12,050 including all taxes.
