According to reports on news channels, on November 23 a PIA ATR performing flight PK632 from Sukkur Airport landed safely at Islamabad Airport after suffering bird/foreign object hit. Cockpit crew received engine number 2 fire warning after bird/foreign object hit. The affected engine was shut down and "Mayday" call was sent by the cockpit crew to air traffic control about 2 nautical miles away from Islamabad Airport. The emergency services were alerted at Islamabad Airport for aircraft landing. The aircraft has been grounded for inspections/repairs.

Apparently, AP-BHI has not returned to the skies after landing at Islamabad Airport as flight PK632 from Sukkur on November 23.

November 24, PIA Islamabad to Gilgit flight PK601 has been cancelled for some reason. The flight was scheduled to leave Islamabad at 6:50 AM and apparently ATR 42-500 registration AP-BHI was expected to perform this flight. PIA flights to Gilgit are also subject to weather conditions.

Media reports are inaccurate regarding the bird strike immediately before the fire indication warning. The bird strike occured some time before and the aircraft was declared airworthy.

Today, PIA ATR 42-500 registration AP-BHI departed from Islamabad Airport Runway 10R at 7:09 AM as flight PK601 to Gilgit. For some reason, the aircraft landed on Islamabad Airport Runway 10R at 7:30 AM. Maximum altitude gained by the aircraft 4,925 feet. Flights to airports like Gilgit and Skardu sometimes return to Islamabad due to sudden changes in weather conditions on planned flight path or at destination airport.
