The number of international flights to Pakistan has increased after a decline in its coronavirus cases.

A statement issued by the National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) revealed that the number of inbound travelers has increased from 4,000 to 8,000 on a daily basis from 15 June onwards.

The authorities have also increased flights from Britain, Europe, Canada, China, and Malaysia by 40 percent.

Meanwhile, the cancellation of flights by a number of foreign airlines has inconvenienced travelers and has incurred financial losses for those who had booked hotels according to their travel itineraries. This situation has compelled the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to issue warnings to flight operators.
