Last time, I visited UAE in 2013, and now I’m visiting again. Last time, I booked my flight with Emirates Airline which is one of the best Airlines in the world. I had a dream to be on board with Emirates and that came true last year. But the fare of Emirates is comparatively higher than other airlines who operate daily flights from UAE to Pakistan or from Pakistan to UAE. This time I want to experience another airline, and I’ve already bought the return ticket. Let’s have a look at the airlines who offer cheap tickets.
Cheap Flights from Pakistan to Dubai
There are many airlines who operate daily flights from Pakistan to Dubai and other Emirates of the United Arab Emirates. These includes PIA, AirBlue, Shaheen Airline, Emirates Airline, Saudi Ariline & FlyDubai. But these all are not that cheap you can expect. However, below is the list of airlines which can be so cheap.
This time I have my flight with flydubai which is famous for cheap air tickets. I want to experience it myself this time, and I’ll share the experience with you when I’m back to Pakistan. If you want to travel to Dubai or UAE from any city of Pakistan i.e Lahore, Karachi, Sialkot, Quetta, Faisalabad, Multan & Peshawar (Islamabad is not included) then Flydubai is the best choice for you. I got my return ticket for Rs22,000 from Karachi to Dubai.
The great news is that you can freely change your ticket dates according to your situation, but do select the free to change ticket when booking your flight with flydubai.
Important Note: Flydubai flights are cheap, but they don’t provide free meal/foods/drinks in the flight, you’ll have to buy in the air plane.
Shaheen Airline is among the three international airlines operating in Pakistan, you can buy a cheap ticket from them from Pakistan to UAE, it will cost you around 20,000 to 24,000 PKR for a return ticket including the meals & great service offered to passengers on board.
Another cheap flight you can find is with Air Blue, the ticket fare includes meal/drinks on board, and you can change your ticket date with a minor fee. However, sometimes their flights get delayed and therefore I don’t book my ticket with this airline, but overall it was good experience when I traveled with AirBlue within Pakistan.
#4 – Emirates Airline
Emirates also offers cheap flights but according to the season & on first come first serve basis. This means, you should book your flight a few days before departure. Last time, I got a return ticket for Rs29,000, but you can get even between Rs22,000 to Rs26,000 depends on your luck. But this is one of the great airlines I’ve seen so far.
Always try to book your ticket 10 days before departure, this will give you more chances to save money & select a flight which is best in terms of fare. Also, sometimes you can save money by buying one way ticket from an airline and returning ticket from another airline. And finally, use cheapflights.com to find the cheapest fare for selected dates & selected destinations.
