ISLAMABAD: Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) is resuming its regular flight operations to United Arab Emirates from Thursday (today).
According to PIA Spokesman, the passengers will be able to travel from Pakistan to Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi and Al-Ain through regular flights. They can also book and purchase tickets through PIA pffices, corporate website and travel agents.
The PIA spokesman said passengers will be required to get their COVID-19 test done within 48 hours prior to flight departure and a negative test report would have to be presented at the time of check-in and will also have to fill a health declaration available online.
He maintained that PIA was operating one-way relief flights to UAE to repatriate stranded Pakistanis but now the airline will operate regular flights after obtaining permissions for the convenience of passengers.
Earlier, European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has suspended flight operation of PIA for six months after it was revealed that many pilots had dubious licences and continued to operate flights.
This prompted a letter to the UAE to write a letter to Pakistan’s government to verify the licences of 50 Pakistani pilots working in different airlines of the Gulf nation.
