RAWALPINDI: Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has announced a 10pc reduction in domestic flight fares for senior citizens who have been vaccinated against Covid-19.

A PIA spokesman said senior citizens (50 years and above) can get the discount on domestic flights after showing their Covid-19 vaccination certificate issued by Nadra. He said the reduced fare will be applicable immediately.

“PIA, in support of the vaccination drive will be offering 10pc discount on domestic tickets by showing the Nadra vaccination certificate,” the spokesman said.

Meanwhile, PIA’s inaugural Safari flight has been cancelled for one-week due to bad weather in the northern areas.

The spokesman said clear weather conditions are important for sighting the world’s highest mountains. The Safari’s first flight will depart on June 19, 2021 instead of June 12. All passengers are being informed by the PIA management.
