An Airblue flight PA-213 reached Islamabad International Airport on Saturday leaving behind the luggage of all passengers at the Sharjah Airport, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The passengers lodged their protest against the airline’s negligence. However, the protest by the passengers came to an end after the airline management had promised they would bring the luggage back to the country as soon as possible.

Separately, a Pakistan International Airline (PIA) flight PK-452 from Skardu to Islamabad was cancelled after a delay of four hours. The flight ought to take off at 12:20 pm today (Saturday) but the plane's tyres were low-pressured.

Sources say PIA Engineering is responsible for the maintenance of plane’s tyres but the relevant machine was not operational and hence the PIA took services of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF).

The TV channel reported that the national carrier has aimed to boost domestic tourism with more flights to and from the tourist sites but on the other hand, the PIA has not been dealing with such small technical issues timely.
