PIA To Resume Flight Operation On Beijing-Tokyo Route From Today
KARACHI–Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will resume its flight operation on Beijing-Tokyo sector from Friday (today).
The airline will now operate twice a week flights for the sector Islamabad- Beijing -Tokyo every Friday and Monday.
The Tokyo sector was suspended earlier this year in February due to Passenger and Cargo uplift limitations by Japan Civil Aviation Authority.
According to which upon completion of required monthly passenger quota, the airline was not allowed to operate flights to Tokyo, thereby making it non – viable destination on commercial basis.
However, CEO PIA Air Marshal Arshad Malik took up the matter with concerned authorities in Tokyo and after lengthy deliberations, PIA got additional access to uplift Passengers and Cargo for Tokyo.
The business community in Pakistan and Tokyo have expressed their satisfaction on the resumption of Tokyo flights.— PRESS RELEASE
