About PIA - Haj and Umrah
Haj and Umrah Operations
PIA, Pakistan's national airline, operates an extensive two-month Haj operation each year, to and from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Haj, the holy pilgrimage undertaken by Muslims from around the world in the twelfth month of the Islamic calendar (Zilhaj), is one of the fundamental pillars of Islam. Muslims endowed with good health and the economic means to undertake the pilgrimage, perform this sacred duty at least once in their life time. Haj is the largest congregation of the faithful in recorded history. Over the last 1400 years, Muslims from across the world, assemble in the House of Allah in Makkah, Saudi Arabia.
PIA, Pakistan's premier airline, transports thousands of pilgrims each year, from several Pakistani cities to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, at special rates.
Every year, PIA also schedules special flights on the Pakistan- Jeddah-Pakistan sector to serve pilgrims on their way to Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah.
