Pakistan International Airlines’ ATR operation temporarily suspended

Karachi, December 12, 2016 (PPI-OT): In view of Civil Aviation Authority’s decision of holding shakedown tests of PIA’s entire ATR fleet, it has been decided to keep all 10 ATR aircraft grounded till they are cleared after thorough examination.

Temporary suspension of ATR operation will particularly affect PIA’s flight operation to smaller airports like Gwadar, Turbat, Panjgur, Moenjodaro, Zhob, Bahawalpur, DG Khan, Chitral and Gilgit. Passengers are strongly advised to check status of their flights from PIA Call Center at 111-786-786. Inconvenience is regretted.
