However, the demand for travel during this year’s Eid Al-Fitr holiday has witnessed a 50-percent decrease compared to last year.

The society’s secretary told Hala News that many travel and tourism offices are currently working to cancel and reduce the number of seats they have purchased on airlines to meet the lowered demand for foreign trips during the holiday.

Citizens often make last-minute reservations, meaning that some more bookings are expected, but in general, the demand is far below that in 2022, the secretary said, attributing this decline in travel to the failure of many private-sector companies to pay workers’ salaries, the economic situation in general, and the short duration of the Eid holiday.
