Extension in suspension of international flights

What is the change?

The suspension of international flight operations has been extended up to 15 May 2020, Friday, 11.59 p.m. (PST).

Limited inbound international passenger flights

Although regular incoming flight operations have been suspended, a limited number of flights are being operated to ensure the safe return of nationals and safety of passengers travelling to and from Pakistan. Scheduled flights for the current week can be viewed here. Please note that these are subject to change depending on the evolving situation.

Upon arrival in Pakistan, all passengers and crew will be subjected to a minimum of 48-hours state-monitored quarantine period. Testing will be conducted after 48 hours to ensure on-flight transmission of the virus is also monitored. The quarantine can be extended based on the result of the passenger’s COVID-19 test, or upon the discretion of governmental health authorities. Passengers who are sent home after a negative test will be advised compulsory self-isolation to complete a 14-day period.

The transportation to the quarantine location shall be arranged by the concerned authorities. No meet and greet shall be allowed at the airport.
Inbound passengers will be allowed a preference between two modes of quarantine, government quarantine centres or government regulated hotel/facility. Government quarantine centres will be free of cost. Passengers will be responsible for all expenses arising from their stay if they choose to stay in a government regulated hotel/facility. Passengers will not be able to switch facilities once their quarantine begins unless deemed necessary by the authorities. While the Government will try its best to accommodate passengers according to their preferences, paid facilities are limited and cannot be guaranteed. The authorities on the ground will have the final say on where passengers are quarantined. To view the set of guidelines, please click here. More information on current policies can be found here.
