PIA to resume flights to UAE, Saudi on priority basis

Pakistan International Airlines today announced that flights to the UAE and Saudi Arabia are being resumed on a priority basis. This comes after the Pakistani airspace was closed temporarily amid escalating India-Pakistan tensions.

PK-731 will take off from Karachi to Jeddah at 6pm, PK-747 will leave Karachi for Jeddah at 6pm, Dubai-bound PK-213 will leave Karachi at 10pm and PK-245 towards Dammam will fly out at 11pm.

Meanwhile, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) retweeted Flightradar24’s tweet about Pakistani airspace opening its airspace to allow more flights.

On Thursday morning, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) had notified passengers on Twitter that Pakistani airspace will continue to remain closed for commercial aviation until midnight on Thursday, February 28.
