I was watching a news piece for BBC North West Tonight which reported that around 31K people travelled to Pakistan in Jan 2021. This was -50% compared to Jan 2020, whereas passenger numbers to India were -85% and to Spain -95%.

It is being inferred that the key reason for Pakistan being added to the Red List is due to the increased number of people visiting.

April 5 Islamabad to London PIA flight with chartered aircraft is cancelled. The flight 5M703 was scheduled to depart from London at 6:00 PM.

Maybe permission for London flight not granted by UK authorities?

News reports some weeks ago claimed that PIA was allowed only to operate flights between Islamabad and Manchester with chartered aircraft by UK authorities.

PIA has obtained permission to operate two additional flights to UK before April 9.

The first of these additional flights will depart from Islamabad to Manchester on April 7 at 2:30 PM.

Recent three PIA flights with chartered Hi Fly Airbus A330 aircraft transported nearly 900 passengers from Islamabad to Manchester.

Noticed the following aircraft headed to Islamabad.

I presume the Wamos Air A330s are operating a charter flight from ISB.

Not sure about the Enter Air B737s. Anyone got any information on them?
