PIA to Resume Paris Flights From August 15 With Alternate Arrangements

Post by Abbas Ali »

From August 15, PIA is resuming Paris flights with alternate arrangements.

Planned flights to be operated on August 15, 16, 29 & 30.

The airline's Paris flights were suspended due to EASA ban effective from July 1 for six months.

I am very surprised that PIA still flies to Paris, I though the pakistani population is paris is very small, how does it warrant these flights?

Apparently over 100,000 people of Pakistani origin ( mostly from Punjab) reside in France. I think 2-3 weekly PIA flights there were going reasonably well.

These are special chartered flights with special permissions for repatriation only. EASA imposed suspension remains in place.
