KARACHI: Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FPCCI) has flayed hike in air fares by domestic airlines.
In a statement issued on Thursday Engr. Daroo Khan Achakzai, President FPCCI and S.M. Muneer, Leader of the Business Community, Former Chief Executive TDAP and Former President of FPCCI showing concern on continuation of abrupt hike in the air fares on all the domestic routes have urged the Aviation Minister, Ghulam Sarwar Khan to initiate a regulatory body to monitor air fares and evolve a mechanism for this purpose.
They elaborated that in the absence of any mechanism or check and balance to control the price hike, the airlines have been arbitrarily increasing the airfares on domestic routes.
They added that the exorbitant hike in the air fare had badly caused anxiety amongst the commuters particularly the business community who also frequently travel on the domestic route for promotion of trade and industrial activities in the country.
