“We remain committed to serving our customers in Pakistan and have worked hard throughout the pandemic to ensure we can operate as many flights as possible, in line with the directions of the Pakistan government.”
Passengers from Pakistan are required take a Covid-19 RT-PCR medical test. Passengers will need to present a negative test result issued within 72 hours prior to departure, when checking in.
