Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) is all prepared to send relief flights to the US to bring back all the stranded Pakistanis.
The National flag carrier has completed all its preparations as it is going to operate 12 flights to the United States of America. On the other hand, the authority of the American airport has distributed slots for the PIA’s special flights.
In total, twelve relief flights will be operated by PIA to the USA’s different states which include; Chicago, New Jersey, and New York to bring the nationals back to their homeland.
On May 12th, the first flight will take off from the Islamabad airport for Washington DC. Boeing 777 aircraft will take off for America from Pakistan without carrying any passenger.
An act known as the Pakistan Essential Services (Maintenance) Act 1952 has been imposed by the Federal Government recently on April 29 for the smooth functioning of the flight operations of PIA for six months.
The latest order immediately became effective after the Ministry of Interior gave orders to continue the special flight operations in the middle of the COVID-19 crises.
Also, the directives asked to employ all classes to the airlines in order to maintain the smooth functioning of the flight operations, the welfare of people, and public safety.
