Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will restore flight operations to Sharjah and Muscat sectors in the second half of this month, the national flag carrier said in a statement on Friday.

The Lahore-Muscat route will be restored from November 17, and an Airbus A320 will conduct two weekly flights on Saturdays and Sundays.

With the introduction of these flights, PIA will have a total of nine flights to Muscat operating from Peshawar, Turbat, Gwadar and Lahore.

Staff lacks skills, PIA admits before SC

The Sialkot-Sharjah route will be restored from November 20, and the national carrier will operate two weekly flights on Tuesdays and Fridays. The airline will have five weekly flights on the route, including three from Turbat.

Earlier this year, PIA suspended operations to Kuwait and Salalah, Oman.

The decision was taken after the national flag carrier suspended flight operations to New York citing heavy financial losses.
