According to the airport administration, a private courier company’s cargo plane was being parked in front of the Hajj terminal. Due to the closure of the runway, flight 406 of a private company from Karachi to Lahore had been diverted to Islamabad Airport while the departure of flight 305 of PIA from Lahore to Karachi had also been stopped.
