The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on Friday announced that domestic flights will resume operations from May 16.

A CAA spokesperson said Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) and Serene Air will operate flights in the mornings and afternoons.

The authority further said that 68 flights will operate from Jinnah International Airport, 32 from Allama Iqbal International Airport, 32 from Islamabad International Airport, eight from Quetta International Airport and four from Bacha Khan International Airport.

In April, the federal government extended the suspension of international and domestic flight operations in line with the national strategy to stem the spread of novel coronavirus.

However, during that period, PIA resumed its relief flights to repatriate stranded Pakistani nationals.

Earlier this month, PIA announced a special flight schedule to fly parliamentarians from Karachi to Islamabad for the first National Assembly session to be held during the Covid-19 pandemic.
