Pakistan is set to operate international flight operations from June 20, the Ministry of Overseas Pakistanis said Friday.
In a Twitter post, the Ministry of Overseas has announced the resumption of international flights on all airports.
As being reported, the country will ease restrictions on international flight operations and will open all its international airports, except Gwadar and Turbat.
“Govt of Pakistan has authorized International Flight Operations to/from All International Airports of Pakistan except Gwadar and Turbat airports, with effect from June 20, 2020,” read the tweet.
