Emirates Airlines, Etihad Airways and Gulf Air claim the number of one-way tickets issued from the region has not increased in recent weeks, reports Arabian Business. The Dubai-based business website called the airlines to investigate claims that expatriates are leaving the GCC in droves this summer.

“We do not provide a detailed breakdown on our ticket sales, but we can confirm that the number of one-way tickets being booked out of the region is no different than in previous years – accounting for less than 1 percent of total bookings,” a spokesperson for Dubai-based Emirates told Arabian Business.

Spokespeople for Etihad and Gulf Air issued similar statements.

    Of course there isn’t an increase in one-way tickets for expats. Everyone knows that (in some cases) a one-way ticket is almost the same price as a return, if not more expensive…

    And of course, people who have pending loans to pay will not like to arouse suspicion by taking a one-way ticket.

    Came back from London on an Emirates flight last week, the flight was 80& full but there were no more than 5 people actually come to the baggage collection. The rest were connecting… At least the baggage collection was quiet!

    Under the current circumstances, people may be opting for cheaper airlines options, which issue a one way ticket for each sector. Hard to tell..
