Emirates suspends flight operations to Pakistan for 10 days
Emirates Airlines has suspended air traffic to Pakistan for 10 days, and the last flight will shortly depart Karachi for Dubai.
United Arab Emirates airline has suspended its flights to Pakistan from June 23 to July 3, according to the details.
The explanation for the suspension emerged when 26 passengers tested positive for Covid-19 on the Emirates flight to Hong Kong.
The passengers boarded the Emirates Boeing 777-300ER, flying as flight number 380 from Dubai. Although all of the infected passengers had traveled from Pakistan, they seemed to have no seat together. They were strewn across the cabin from rows 18 to 44.
The airline suspended flights from Pakistan only after resumption of two weeks of flights.
Notice that, now that the government has opened airspace, flight operations are slowly resuming to land.
The Pakistani government has stipulated that airlines will follow up on coronavirus SOPs.
Furthermore, the government made it mandatory for all passengers to have COVID-19 testing and to transfer to the quarantine facility whoever tests positive for the virus.
