PIA considering Flights Operation to Gwadar – Good News for Port City
On Tuesday January 21, Minister for Aviation Ghulam Sarwar said the government is considering starting flights operation of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) on the route of Quetta to Gwadar.
He said currently there is no flight from Quetta to other cities of Balochistan. Previously PIA had been operating twice a week flights between Gwadar and Quetta but due to insufficient load of passengers the flights were suspended.
Ghulam Sarwar said the PIA had assured that they had a constant eye on the market indicators and traffic trends frequent on these routes and would start operations not only from Quetta to Gwadar and Turbat but on other routes as well when the market conditions would improve.
