Quetta Airport runway is being upgraded for regular Boeing 777 category wide-body aircraft operations.

Maybe currently available runway length at Quetta Airport creates load restriction for Jeddah/Medina narrow-body aircraft (A320/B737) flight operation in hot summer weather high temperatures?

Faisalabad is also missing.

Although upgrading of main runway is under progress but entire flight operation is being carried out except Hajj/Umrah flights. Unable to know the reason.
