According to a statement issued by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the airline Pegasus will launch flights to Pakistan from March 28. The CAA air transportation department has issued an official travel notification to Turkish airline Pegasus for its flight. The Turkish carrier will fly from Karachi to Istanbul four times a week, CAA said in a statement.
The move comes after Turkish President Erdogan’s successful visit to Pakistan. Earlier, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will begin direct flights to the United States (United States) from April 2020, with preparations having entered its final phase. Sources told ARY News that the national standard-bearer will undertake direct flights between Pakistan and the United States from April next year and that the PIA administration has requested authorization from officials Americans for this, in addition to providing related documents and plans.
Sources added that PIA will use its long-range Boeing 777 for flights to the United States. It is relevant to mention here that a United States homeland security team traveled to Pakistan for an overview of the direct flight arrangements at the Islamabad and Karachi airports. In March last year, US authorities authorized Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) to fly directly to the United States (United States). Progress follows, after a meeting of the Consul General of the United States of America, JoAnne Wagner, with the CEO of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), Arshad Malik, at PIA headquarters.
