Air passengers will now have to pay Rs2,800 in Pakistani currency as part of airport charges on international departures, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has said.
A CAA notification issued stated that the authority has decided to collect airport charges in Pakistani rupees instead of US dollars at the airports across the country from international passengers.
"In order to avoid any inconvenience to the passengers, the Airport Charges (INFR+SEC) payable by the passengers earlier at the rate of $20, have been rationalised for payment at a fixed amount of Pakistan Rupees (Rs2,800) per departing international passenger" the notification said.
"All airlines operators are required to ensure compliance in true letter and spirit," the notification said. Earlier, international passengers were required to pay $20 as airport charges.
