PIA suspends flights operation to Damascus after Israeli air attack
ISLAMABAD – Pakistan International Airlines has suspended flights operation to Damascus after an Israeli attack left the runways at Damascus International Airport damaged, a PIA spokesman confirmed on Saturday.
PIA spokesman Abdullah Hafeez Khand mentioned that the flight operations to and from the Middle East country had been suspended after Israeli forces resorted to bombardment at the capital’s airport.
He mentioned that both runways are damaged which led to the complete suspension of flight operations there.
In wake of the grave situation, flight PK-135, which was scheduled to depart from Karachi to Damascus on Friday morning, was suspended. Another flight PK-136 was also canceled.
PIA spokesman maintained that the flight’s cancellation was unavoidable due to the confronted operational issues, however he mentioned rescheduling as the runways were restored.
