PIA asks passengers to observe boarding time restriction to ensure timely departures
Karachi; December 23, 2015
In view of complaints of passengers reporting late at check-in counters, or later, not showing up at the boarding gates, resulting in delay in the takeoff of flights, PIA has requested passengers to observe boarding time restrictions, which are in accordance with international aviation norms.
For international flights all counters will now be closed for check-in 60 minutes prior to flight’s departure time, while boarding desks will be closed 20 minutes before departure time.
For domestic flights all counters will now be closed for check-in 30 minutes prior to flight’s departure time while boarding desks will be closed 15 minutes before departure time.
These instructions have been passed on to the PIA’s concerned departments, and passengers are advised to reach airports accordingly.
It may also be mentioned that airlines have to follow the short time slots given to them by control tower for landing and takeoff of each flight. If that time slot is missed, aircraft have to wait for the next available slot, which may result in long delays.
