KARACHI: The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) on Sunday disclosed that the schedule of multiple of its flights will probably be rescheduled because of heavy fog in multiple cities throughout the country.
Based on a report, a PIA spokesperson stated that the schedule of various flights needed to be changed after heavy mist engulfed Karachi, Lahore, Multan, Faisalabad, Sialkot, and its surrounding areas.
The spokesperson added that further flights are anticipated to be rescheduled due to the fog.
“Domestic flights will restart activity after visibility on the runways is ensured,” the spokesperson added. “However, international flights will land at alternate airports.”
Fog and dangerous climate situations have these days been affecting multiple flights and train schedule throughout the country of late.
MET officers stated that a westerly wave is approaching higher and western elements of the country and will persist in higher elements until Monday. They predicted that rain (snowfall over hills) is anticipated in Gilgit Baltistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, upper/central Punjab, Islamabad and Kashmir.
Earlier at present, 19 flights had been cancelled and 16 delayed on the Allama Iqbal Worldwide Airport. On December 8, multiple flights needed to be cancelled for the same cause.
