The CAA made it mandatory to wear facemasks for the passengers coming to aiports and the visitors with them.

The CAA issued the new circular to all the airports in the country including Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport, Jinnah International Karachi Airport and Islamabad International Airport.
