The second largest airline of Pakistan, Airblue has taken the decision to resume its international flights.
The airline got the needed permissions from the government of Pakistan and as soon as it receives the permits from the other governments, it would then officially be announcing its flight schedule. It has the intention to fly to most of the cities in the United Arab Emirates and in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Airblue suspended its domestic and international flights from the 15th of April until the 30th of June 2020 as Pakistan had closed its airspace for the international commercial flights in the month of March after the coronavirus outbreak in the country in the ending days of the month of February.
On the 12th of June Airblue announced about resuming its domestic flights. Presently, the airline is operating 2 flights between Islamabad-Karachi and Lahore-Karachi, while the international flights are still not resumed. Nearly 45 percent of the domestic flight schedules are operational.
Earlier on the 16th of May PM Khan had ordered to resume the local flight operations after about 2 months of suspension to facilitate the passengers on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr.
The government has already permitted PIA and some other selected foreign airlines to operate special flights for bringing the stranded Pakistanis back from across the world.
