The national flag carrier, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), Friday announced to resume its Quetta to Peshawar operation which will see two-way flights every week.
The resumption of Quetta-Peshawar flight operation is the result of joint efforts by all stakeholders, said parliamentary information secretary of Balochistan Bushra Rind.

Domestic flights barred to serve meals once again as Covid numbers soar.
Earlier, in an aviation department development Thursday, Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) said the domestic flights will not serve meals to passengers as the Covid cases have surged once again in the fourth wave of the pandemic.
This is being done in the interest of people and in the backdrop of surging Covid numbers in the country, aviation regulator CAA said in a notification out today.
The condition of Covid vaccination certificate ahead of boarding the flights remains intact, the CAA notification said.
It added that all the SOPs and restrictions rolled out earlier are to remain in place with this one addition that there will no more be meal serving in the flights. The regulator had lifted the ban from serving packed meals to the passengers just late last month after an erstwhile ban of over eight months.
