PIA resumes regular flight operations to UAE from today
ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) is resuming its regular flight operations to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) from Thursday (today).
According to the PIA spokesman, the passengers will be able to travel from Pakistan to Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi and Al Ain through air lines’ regular flights.
They can also book and purchase tickets through PIA Offices, its corporate website and travel agents.
The PIA spokesman said passengers will be required to get their COVID-19 test done within 48 hours prior to flight departure and a negative test report would have to be presented at the time of check-in.
All the Pakistan International Airline (PIA) flights have been temporarily banned from flying to the Europe Union and the United Kingdom for six months.
The permission has been suspended by the European Union Air Safety Agency (EASA) viewing the rising number of coronavirus case as well as following surfacing of the issue of dubious licenses. “Pakistan is not capable to certify and oversee its airline operators,” said EASA.
The implementation of the suspension began at 12:00 am UTC on Jul 1, 2020.
