PIA to operate special flight to Istanbul to evacuate stranded Pakistanis


Karachi; July 16, 2016

On the directions of the Prime Minister, Chairman PIA, Mr. Azam Saigol has said that PIA will operate a ferry flight to Istanbul at the earliest to evacuate the Pakistanis stranded in the city.

In this regard the airline has approached the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for obtaining necessary approvals and permissions, he said.

In a statement issued here this evening, the Chairman said that a Boeing-777 aircraft would be sent to Istanbul as soon as these formalities are completed.

It may be noted that PIA doesn't fly to Turkey and has a code sharing arrangement with Turkish Airlines under which passengers can travel on PIA's ticket on Turkish Airlines flights.
