Why not from Quetta? Why 5 out of 8 cities are from Punjab? The Punjabi elite is still not ready to consider areas outside Punjab as part of Pakistan.
Hope the private carriers provide direct hajj flights from Quetta
What is this sh**? Trying to play provincial card where its not needed? Punjab has almost 60% of total population of the country? Do you think just to satisfy your wishes they should ask these Punjabis to travel to KPK or Sindh and fly from there because someone wants so?

Quetta handles Int’l hajj traffic every year but one possible reason for this year was (i think) the runway upgrade. As far as i know main runway is not available for flights. Same is the case in Faisalabad.
