Weekly Quetta link for PIA


Pakistan International Airlines will introduce a new weekly flight on the Dubai-Quetta-Dubai route.

The flight, beginning from April 1, will be operated on Tuesdays with a Boeing B737, said a company spokesman.

The new flight will provide a direct link between Pakistan's Baluchistan province with Dubai. The Baluch community in the UAE now travels to Quetta via Karachi.

Separately, PIA, Pakistan's national carrier, has altered the flight schedules to Karachi to provide convenient and immediate connections to passengers travelling onward to Multan.

Passengers who have onward bookings to Multan will now be able to take a connecting flight within two to three hours from Karachi, instead of having an overnight stopover in the southern port city, as they have to do now.

PIA now operates seven weekly flights from Dubai to Karachi.

It also operates another seven to Peshawar, flights to this north-west frontier town are combined with either Lahore or Peshawar as the other destination.
