According to the alert shared by the embassy, they will continue contacting those who completed the traveller interest form to ensure every seat is full on the US government-chartered flights departing this week.
“A reminder that these flights are US government charter flights to repatriate US citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents to the United States. United States citizens and their immediate family members, followed by Lawful Permanent Residents, will receive priority for all flights.”
It was reported earlier that the United States will operate six chartered flights to repatriate its more than 2,200 citizens from Islamabad and Karachi to Washington’s Dulles Airport during this week.
However, sources had said that the US diplomatic staff would not be among the passengers to be served through the chartered flights.
