Earlier last month, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) had requested Kuwait’s Directorate General of Civil Aviation to allow PIA to resume flights to and from the Gulf state.

According to the details, Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has sent a reminder to Kuwait’s aviation regulator which read “While our national air carrier has been vehemently pursuing operating flights to/from Kuwait, approval for the same has not been granted by your esteemed Authority and our letter has also not been responded to”.

 “In cognizance of the spirit of reciprocity, it was our desire that your esteemed Authority may approve the requested flight operation of PIAC to/from Kuwait especially in the backdrop of the utmost facilitation that has been extended by Pakistan CAA to Kuwait designated airlines despite the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
