Beijing: Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has been granted approval by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) to operate direct weekly passenger flights on the Islamabad-Xian-Islamabad route from next month.
“PK-856 will depart from Islamabad International Airport every Tuesday for Xian and PK-857 will return to Islamabad on the same day,” official sources told APP here.
The Islamabad-Xian-Islamabad will be the third direct flight of the national flag carrier between Pakistan and China.
PIA was already operating weekly passenger flights on Islamabad-Beijing-Islamabad and Islamabad-Chengdu-Islamabad routes on Sunday and Wednesday respectively.
The local office of the airline has informed the head office about the approval and is making all necessary arrangements for the start of the smooth flight operation.
It is worth mentioning that the CAAC accorded approval to PIA to restart its direct flight operation between Islamabad and Beijing from October 30, considering Pakistan as its all-weather strategic cooperative partner of China.
PIA is among the few international airlines allowed to operate three direct flights a week.
Pakistani officials, traders and students have warmly welcomed the launch of PIA’s direct passenger flight between the two countries.
They said the direct flights of national flag carriers between various Pakistani and Chinese cities would also facilitate Chinese personnel working on different projects being completed under China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) in Pakistan.
