Cathay Pacific to suspend Karachi flights from June 28
KARACHI: Cathay Pacific has announced to cease its operations in Karachi, after the audacious militants’ attack on city airport which killed over two dozen people earlier this month, ARY News reported Tuesday.
In its statement, the airlines said, “Cathay Pacific will stop flying to Karachi in Pakistan, with the last flight leaving Hong Kong on June 28. The decision has been made for commercial reasons.”
“The airline will operate 14 more flights to and from Karachi before its operations are ceased. This is to avoid disruptions for the hundreds of passengers who will be travelling prior to the holy month of Ramadan. Customers are recommended to check flight status before departing for the airport, said Cathay Pacific.
The statement further adds, “We will assist with alternative arrangements for affected passengers whose flights between Karachi were originally scheduled after operations cease.”
