For the first time, the country’s national flag flight 747 – PK took off from this city at night. It left for Medina with 145 pilgrims. Earlier, PK-6133 and PK-6137 departed for Madinah carrying around 300 pilgrims.

The recent flight operations from the Balochistan capital came after the Pakistani authorities upgraded the airport, enabling it to host a wider range of aircraft.

Ten Pakistani cities are now participating in the Hajj operation, and on July 4 the post-Hajj flight operation will begin.
