The airfare for flights from Dubai to Mangaluru has surged dramatically, forcing passengers to pay double the usual fare. This spike in prices is attributed to the upcoming festivals and summer holidays set to commence next month. Normally priced at Rs 30,000, the ticket fares have now soared due to the Easter feast on March 31, Ugadi on April 9, and Ramzan on April 11.

With a significant number of passengers traveling between Mangaluru and Dubai, especially during festive seasons, the one-way ticket fare has peaked at Rs 70,000, as reported by The Times of India.

During the first week of April, ticket fares from various destinations have risen substantially: Rs 51,000 from Dammam, Rs 70,000 from Dubai, Rs 45,000 from Abu Dhabi, and Rs 53,000 from Doha, Qatar. Interestingly, ticket fares from Mangaluru have seen only a marginal increase.

The fare from Mangaluru to Abu Dhabi is set at Rs 47,000, Rs 36,000 to Doha, Rs 33,000 to Dammam, and Rs 58,000 to Jeddah. However, flights originating from Kannur and Bengaluru airports, which are relatively closer at 150 kilometers and 350 kilometers away respectively, offer fares almost half of those from Mangaluru. For instance, the fare from Dubai to Kannur is approximately Rs 30,000, as stated in the newspaper report.
