Consulate General of Pakistan in Jeddah Tuesday informed that two Pakistan International Airline (PIA) special flights left Jeddah for Pakistan carrying 500 passengers back home.

Official twitter account of the consulate said, “PK-9860 left for Islamabad while PK-9762 carrying 250 passengers departed for Lahore. 29 such flights with 6200 passengers have so far been operated from Jeddah region.”

It is pertinent to note that Pakistan already resumed international flight operations from all its international airports, except Gwadar and Turbat.

Aviation Division Spokesperson said the permission for international flight operations would be subject to restrictions in light of the current Covid-19 scenario and implementation of health protocols.

While cargo, special and diplomatic flights would continue to be authorised as per procedure in vogue and adherence to the relevant applicable standard operating procedures would be mandatory for all airline operators.
