KUWAIT CITY, July 17: According to the Director General of Bash Aviation Company for Travel and Tourism Muhammad Bashir, despite the end of the Eid al-Adha holidays and the end of almost one month since the start of the summer vacation, the prices of flight tickets are still high due to the continuous demand by citizens and residents to travel. This demand has led to an increase in the prices of flights to some preferred destinations from Kuwait by up to 200 percent, reports Al- Anba daily.
In detail, Bashir explained that Turkey, Egypt, London, Baku and the Maldives top the list of destinations currently preferred by people from Kuwait. The roundtrip costs for those destinations after the Eid holidays are high, given the ongoing high demand. The prices to travel to some of those destinations from Kuwait are not high but the costs of return tickets are high. For example, the cost of a flight ticket to London at present is about KD 390 round trip, but KD 100 one way.
The price of a ticket to the Maldives is about KD 334 round trip with the end of the Eid holidays, but only between KD 75 to KD 130 one way. The price of a one-way ticket to Egypt is currently about KD 172. The cost of a one-way trip from Kuwait to Egypt was about KD 50 recently, and it rose again in the last one-two days to almost KD 100.
