Qatar Airways to resume operations at Peshawar airport

PESHAWAR: Qatar Airways will resume flight operations to and from Bacha Khan Airport in Peshawar from today (Thursday), a travel alert posted on its website said.

Qatar Airways has officially announced to restart its operations from July 3, after remaining suspended for about a week in the wake of an attack on PIA 756 flight on June 25 which left a woman dead and other two crew members injured.

Terminal Manager Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), Peshawar Airport, Syed Latiful Haq, confirmed that Qatar Airlines has intimated to the authorities about starting its flight operations from July 3.

He added that although other international airlines had not intimated their status as yet, they were likely to resume shortly.

Six international airlines, including Etihad, Gulf, Saudi Airlines, Emirates Airlines, Qatar and Air Arabia, are operating from Peshawar airport, mostly carrying the working class of KP to Middle Eastern countries and other destinations.

Apart from Air Arabia, all five international airlines had announced suspension of their operations from Peshawar following the July 25 incident.
