British Airways has announced on Thursday that it would be restarting the flight operations to Pakistan after the contagious COVID-19 started to decrease in the South Asian nation.
As per a statement released by the British High Commission in the federal capital, the airline said that the resumed flights would take off 3 times per week between the Heathrow Airport and Islamabad.
The first flight would be landing in the capital city on the 14th of August, which is also the independence day of Pakistan. The flights would be operated using extra preventive steps for the safety of its passengers and crew members.
The statement further read that the announcement of the flight operations commencement is another significant step to reconnect the trade links and the people-to-people links between Pakistan and the United Kingdom.
Owing to coronavirus pandemic, the passengers would be told to wear masks and would have access to the hand sanitizer during the flight, while the crew members would wear the masks.
The direct flights of the airline resumed in June 2019 after a gap of 10 years. The carrier for the first time flew to the federal capital in 1976.
