Lahore: The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) on Thursday reduced fare on two international destinations by 20 per cent.
The national flag carrier has reduced the fares on its London and Houston destinations; however, on the other US routes the fare would remain unchanged.

The reduced fare would be effective from Friday till July 31.

He said after reducing 20 per cent fares on international routes, the PIA fares were the lowest as compared to Gulf Airlines, Emirates Airlines, Qatar Airlines and Kuwait Airlines.
The PIA had already reduced fares by 17 percent to 37 percent on various domestic destinations. The new management was determined to win the confidence of its customers, the spokesman added.
