Rawalpindi: According to our sources, before April 9, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has scheduled three additional flights to transport Pakistani migrants to the United Kingdom.
Abdullah Hafeez, a PIA spokesman, said the airline has added two more flights to meet the demand for flights to the UK before the ban, in addition to the three-morning flights. On April 8, both flights will depart for Manchester.
More flights have been chartered, he said, due to high demand. The number of additional flights operated by PIA before April 8 has risen to eight, taking the total number of flights to thirteen.
According to the spokesperson, PIA used chartered aircraft instead of its own planes because of European Union sanctions. The flight activity aims to repatriate Pakistani and British nationals who have been affected by the ban as soon as possible.
On April 7 and 8, new flights will be operated to Manchester, and on April 8, new flights will be operated to London.
He claimed that all passengers should contact PIA offices to book their seats. He expressed optimism that the new flights would be able to meet passenger demand.
According to the spokesman, booking offices will remain open for 24 hours per the orders of the PIA CEO for the convenience of passengers.
