PIA launches flights to Ras Al Khaimah after a gap of 18 years
Airblue has recently launched flight operations to Ras Al Khaimah as well.
Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has resumed its flight operations to Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after a gap of 18 years.
It is pertinent to note that that national carrier already has frequent flight operations to the UAE’s other emirates, such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah.
Meanwhile, PIA’s flight operations to Ras Al Khaimah are expected to open more opportunities for Pakistani expatriates in the oil-rich Gulf country.
Now, several Pakistani cities, including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, and Peshawar, would be able to witness PIA flight operations between the Pakistani cities and Ras Al Khaimah.
According to the PIA’s official Twitter account, a “modest” ceremony was held at the Ras Al Khaimah International Airport (RKT) to celebrate PIA’s launching of operations after a gap of 18 years.
