RAWALPINDI: The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has allowed Turkish Airlines to operate seven flights a week from Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad.

A CAA official told Dawn on Wednesday that Turkish Airlines had been allowed to operate special flights from July 2 (Thursday).

Turkish Airlines had stopped flights to Pakistan after the host country closed its airspace to prevent the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. The Pakistan government has made it mandatory for all passengers to follow standard operating procedures and have Covid-19 testing.

The CAA also allowed Air Arabia to operate limited number of flights between Sharjah and Karachi.
