Pakistan is all set to resume outbound international flight operations from 30th May (Saturday), announced the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on Friday, at all airports with the exception of Gwadar and Turbat.

“The restrictions on inbound passenger operations into Pakistan shall continue. However, special permission is required from the government of Pakistan by national foreign carriers and charter operators for flights with inbound passengers on a case-to-case basis”, according to the notification.

In a notice to air persons (NOTAM), the CAA said the development to allow foreign ferry flights (non-passenger planes) was “as per the decision taken by the government of Pakistan”.

“All national and foreign carriers are permitted to start scheduled/non-scheduled and charter operations for outbound passengers only, with effect from May 29, 2020, 1900 UTC [12 am local time, Saturday] from all international airports except Gwadar and Turbat airports,” the notice added.
