PESHAWAR: A Karachi-bound Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight departed an hour early from Bacha Khan International Airport in Peshawar, leaving many passengers behind.
Flight PK-351 was scheduled to depart Peshawar for Karachi at 8:30am, but left the airport one hour ahead of time.
Speaking to The Express Tribune on the condition of anonymity, a PIA official said that they did not know the exact cause of the ‘ahead of scheduled time’ departure, but some passengers who had been left behind had complained to them and the matter was being investigated.
PIA Station Manager Ehsanullah said, “This flight which was scheduled for 7:30am, the schedule was given by PIA Karachi.”
Passengers said the delay in flights was a routine matter and the delay had caused them “fatigue of mind”, and business losses due to loss of time.
