Great news awaits Pakistanis residing in the UK and across Europe as Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) is set to resume its flights to Paris next month and to the UK on August 14, marking the end of a four-year hiatus, as reported by 24NewsHD TV.

According to Abdullah Hafeez, the spokesperson for PIA, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is expected to grant permission to the airline in phases throughout the ongoing month.

Hafeez stated that upon receiving approval from the Agency, PIA will prioritize the resumption of flight operations in Paris. “The direct flight to London is scheduled to commence on August 14,” he added.
