On May 7th, Pakistan International Airlines’ (PIA) flight will depart for Washington. It will bring the stranded Pakistanis back home.
Following the approval from the U.S to conduct direct flights to bring back stranded Pakistanis, the national air carrier has begun planning the schedule of the flights.
Boeing-777 aircraft of the PIA will depart for the U.S from Islamabad on May 7th. It will bring back 300 stranded citizens from the United States.
It is pertinent to mention here that PIA was permitted to conduct direct flights to the United States last week, to airlift its stranded citizens.
The US Transport Department granted the permission on request of Pakistan to bring back its stranded citizens in the United States of America.
The permission granted by the U.S will allow PIA to operate around 12 flights in a month to bring back stuck Pakistanis.
As per the PIA spokesperson, the permission was given to Pakistan by the US after the security condition improved.
For taking this issue with the U.S, CEO PIA Air Marshal Arshad Malik thanked Prime Minister Imran Khan, Foreign Ministry, and Aviation Ministry.
