Due to operational considerations, British Airways has temporarily halted direct flights between Islamabad Airport and London’s Heathrow Airport.
British Airways has suspended Islamabad-London flights from June 15 to June 30 owing to operational issues, according to a representative for the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
All reports alleging that the British airline has grounded all flights to Pakistan owing to a lack of fuel have been dismissed by the spokesperson as “baseless and false.”
He stated that the airline would shortly start flights between Islamabad and London.
British Airways discontinued direct flights between Lahore and London Heathrow in February this year when the agreement’s term expired.
The UK-based airline had suspended Lahore-London flights due to operational issues, according to a representative for the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
It should be remembered that British Airways started flights to Pakistan in June of this year. After a ten-year hiatus, the airline’s direct flights resumed in June 2019. In 1976, the carrier made its inaugural flight to Islamabad.
Flights that had been halted owing to the coronavirus epidemic were restored in August 2021.
