The PIA made a significant announcement to bring back the Pakistanis in the UAE! According to a national airline spokesman, talks with the UAE government are underway, Pakistanis will be returned with special flights to Dubai, Sharjah, and Abu Dhabi if positive results are to be returned.
Pakistan Airlines has announced that special steps are being taken to return those Pakistanis who have been stranded in the UAE after the UAE government stopped their flights. A spokesman for the national airlines has said talks with UAE officials are underway to launch special flights for those wishing to return to Pakistan.
Positive response from the UAE authorities
If there is a positive response from the UAE authorities, PIA will launch special flights to Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah. The spokesman said that the PIA has also suspended its normal flights following the Dubai government’s ban on flights.
Booking for UAE states by Wimmy Airlines has been stopped and PIA employees and travel agents have been made aware of this.
Special progress flights to Dubai
Special progress flights to Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah will be launched if Emirates Civil Aviation makes progress in the matter, which will bring back the Pakistanis there. According to the spokesman, flight number PK203 from Lahore to Dubai, while flight number PK263 and flight PK293 for Lahore to Abu Dhabi have already been departed. These flights leave here without passengers.
In addition, flight number 213 will be departed from Karachi for Dubai. We are alerting all travelers who have booked Emirates for flights via call centers. PI sources say national and international flights canceled due to the Coronavirus have caused national airlines to visit in the last ten days. So far, there has been a deficit of Rs 4 billion. Pakistan Civil Aviation suffered a loss of two and a half billion rupees. One of the reasons is that Saudi Arabia is also going to vacate the PI and bringing Pakistani Umrah pilgrims from there.
