Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has cancelled some flights from Karachi to New Delhi and Mumbai due to “very poor” passenger numbers amid tensions between the two countries. In a statement issued on Saturday, PIA said that its flights from Lahore to New Delhi are operating normally.
Tensions have been running high between India and Pakistan following the Uri terror attack last month.
“Lahore-New Delhi flights are operating normally, however due to very poor load during last three to four weeks few of the Karachi-New Delhi and Karachi-Mumbai flights have been cancelled,” the airline said.
Passengers who had reservations on these cancelled flights have either been accommodated on PIA’s subsequent flights or re-routed to Pakistan through other airlines, it added.
