Stranded Pakistanis no longer have to wait for a special flight ticket because the government has allowed all international airlines to resume flight operations from June 20.
In a series of tweets, the Pakistani Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis and Personnel Development said that intended travelers to the country can now buy tickets directly from the airlines and do not have to wait for a call from the consulate and embassy to buy tickets.
Prime Minister Imran Khan chaired a federal cabinet meeting in Islamabad on Tuesday and gave the green signal for the resumption of international flight operations.
Initially, international flights will only be operated from Gulf States, and later, according to sources, other airlines will be allowed to repatriate stranded Pakistanis through normal flight operations. Pakistan has suspended international flights on Mach 21 to curb the spread of Covid-19.
