Several airline officials as well as travel agencies attributed the drop of travel demand during the national holidays to the economic situation the country is going through due to falling oil prices, and the government’s intention to adopt austerity measures, reduce subsidies and cut employees’ allowances.

Airline companies were satisfied by increasing the capacities of their aircraft to meet demands without having to operate extra flights, except for Flydubai, which announced an additional 22 flights between 23 and 27 February.

Passengers prefer Dubai, Cairo, Beirut and Istanbul according to reservations, in addition to those who chose to go for umrah.
