Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has been allowed to repatriate stranded Pakistanis stranded in United Kingdom. For this purpose, Civil Aviation Authority has allowed Pakistan International Airline (PIA) to partially resume flight operation to United Kingdom (UK).

Civil aviation authority granted permission to the national flag-carrier to operate some special flights to the UK for bringing back nationals. The special flights will be operated from Lahore and Islamabad airports from April 19.

PIA flights will also transport British citizens from Pakistan and brought back nationals trapped in the UK due to suspension of flight operation following coronavirus pandemic.

According to PIA spokesperson, the airline will prioritise the nationals booked their tickets in advance.
