The Allama Iqbal International Airport authorities have postponed multiple to and from flights on Sunday including an inbound and an outbound flight to the United Arab Emirate flights as operational reasons cited behind the falling short.
According to the details, due to lack of planes at disposal, the Airport authorities had postponed the Pakistan International Airline (PIA) Dubai flights and its another flight to Karachi scheduled for later. The Airport authorities had also postponed another flight operating from Sharjah to land in Lahore, while one Karachi-bound Lahore flight too was axed.

Separately from other private airlines, one to-and-fro flight between Lahore and UAE and one between Lahore and Qatar have been canceled today as well.
One private flight to Karachi is among those canceled today, according to the sources, all of this is due to operational matters and lack of flights to cater to the schedule.
Another private flight to Ras al Khaimah and one back-and-forth flight to Karahi were also called off today.
It is pertinent to note that just yesterday, another Airbus A320 aircraft acquired by the national flag carrier, PIA, on dry lease landed at Islamabad International Airport.
The aircraft arrived in the capital from France’s Perpignan city via Egypt. The national flag carrier acquired two Airbus A320 aircraft on a six-year dry lease to upgrade its fleet. The first of the two arrived last month.
