Provinces told to open airports to ease pressure on Islamabad

ISLAMABAD: The National Command and Operation Centre on Covid-19 directed all provincial governments to reopen their airports to avoid chaos in the federal capital.

Since the provincial governments closed their airports in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, all flights bringing Pakistanis from abroad were landing at Islamabad international Airport (IIA).

During the last few weeks, a large number of Pakistanis returned from different parts of the world, including Europe, America and the Middle East.

The Foreign Office informed the capital administration prior to the arrival of the Pakistanis for arrangements to keep the passengers at quarantine centres as a precautionary measure against the spread of the virus.
