KUWAIT CITY, Sept 11: About a week after the resumption of direct commercial flights between Kuwait and Egypt, the price of return tickets decreased by about KD 150 or 30 percent as the price now ranges from KD 350 to KD 370 in various companies operating this route — nine local and Egyptian companies, reports Al-Anba daily. In this context, sources from the tourism and travel offices confirmed that ticket prices to and from Cairo and India are expected to decline further until they reach the normal prices — the same prices before the Corona pandemic — by October.
Sources disclosed the price of return ticket to Cairo remarkably decreased last week, reaching an average of KD 200 for later travel dates. On the role of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation in the exorbitant prices of plane tickets earlier, sources clarified that the directorate has no authority to determine ticket prices, as prices depend on the principle of supply and demand, in addition to the pricing policy of airlines.
