FBR raises tax on airline business class tickets

The tax on business class tickets has increased from Rs 10,000 to Rs 50,000, according to FBR officials, and will take effect on July 1.

The airline staff at the airport will receive the difference in price for business class passenger tickets, according to FBR officials.

In this regard, the PIA spokesperson stated that although the tax on business class international travel tickets has increased, PIA tickets will not be impacted by the increase in tax.

A PIA spokesperson claims that the airline does not even offer business class, and that all of its Economy Plus tickets are subject to economy class taxes.
