Regional carriers to attract travellers with reduced fares

Travel agents have said GCC airlines are offering reduced prices on air tickets to several destinations in Europe, Asia and the Middle East during the month of Ramadan to lure travellers during the lean travel season, Times of Oman has reported. Oman Air is offering 50% discounts on economy class and 25% discounts on business class for passengers travelling between July 7 and August 7, 2013, while Qatar Airways is offering up to 15% on economy and business class fares if they opt to travel between July 9 and July 31, 2013. Flydubai is offering its passengers 50% discount on return fares from Oman to Dubai during the holy month. "This is simply because business travel in the region drops due to shortened working hours and the overall decline in commercial activity," one travel agent said.
