Airfare In UAE Expected To Double During Eid Al Fitr Holidays

Travel experts said airfares in the UAE are set to double over the Eid Al Fitr holidays.

It will also begin to increase once the holy month of Ramadan kicks off. Residents are told to book their tickets now.

Residents in the UAE will have a four to five-day break during Eid Al Fitr depending on the moon sighting.

The International Union for Astronomy and Space Sciences expects Ramadan to begin on April 2, 2022, while Eid Al Fitr will most likely be celebrated on May 2, 2022.

“The earlier people book the ticket, the better,” Sohail Sheikh, Airblue’s country manager for the UAE, was quoted as saying by Khaleej Times.

“Some people get leave approvals late, so they take a call about their travel plan in the last 15 to 20 days of Ramadan. Therefore, the demand spikes in the last week of Ramadan, resulting in a big jump in airfares,” he added.
