According to Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) Chief Executive Officer Arshad Malik, PIA’s flight operations to Kuwait have resumed.
In May 2021, PIA was barred from flying to Kuwait as a precaution against the spread of the coronavirus epidemic, despite Kuwaiti carriers continued to service Pakistan.
After the Gulf state granted permission for PIA to restart flight operations to Pakistan, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) restricted the number of flights operated by the two Kuwaiti airlines to Pakistan on October 1.
The minister of aviation, secretary of aviation, and civil aviation authorities received special gratitude from PIA CEO Air Marshal (retd) Arshad Malik.
He said that the foreign ministry’s efforts, as well as those of Pakistan’s envoy to Kuwait and Kuwait’s ambassador to Pakistan, assisted in the resumption of flights between the two nations.
There will be no restrictions on technical visas in the medical and oil sectors for Pakistanis, it was decided.
Because of the coronavirus epidemic, Kuwait barred Pakistani airlines and pilots from entering the nation earlier this year.
The Civil Aviation Authority had informed Kuwait two weeks ago that if flights were not restored, Pakistan would suspend all Kuwaiti Airlines operations.
