Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on Monday has given one-time permission to Qatar Airlines to bring back Pakistanis stranded in Doha due to the coronavirus outbreak. The flight will land at Islamabad airport at 8:00pm tonight.

The passengers will be subjected to strict health screening upon arrival as advised by the Ministry of Health before being allowed to leave the airport premises after landing.

The federal government’s March 21 move to suspend international flights coming into Pakistan till April 4 has left travelers stranded at airports across the globe.
