Cathay resumes Karachi flights from tomorrow
KARACHI: Cathay Pacific Airways has announced resuming its flights to and from Karachi on June 13.
According to official website of the Cathay, the decision was taken after reviewing security situation at Jinnah International Airport in Karachi.
The message on the website reads, “After further reviewing the situation at Jinnah International Airport in Karachi, Cathay Pacific will resume flights to/from Karachi on 13 June (Friday) with additional capacity to help meet demand from recently cancelled flights.
It also added that customers were recommended to check flight status before departing for the airport.
Cathay Pacific Airways had cancelled all flights to Karachi from Bangkok following a Taliban raid on the country’s busiest airport this week.
International flights in and out of Karachi were suspended twice since Sunday, when gunmen wearing military uniforms stormed the airport, firing rocket-propelled grenades in an all-night siege that killed 34 people.
