PESHAWAR: Emirates Airlines resumed operation in Peshawar on Thursday after a one-month hiatus following the firing attack on Pakistan International Airlines’ flight 756 that left a woman dead and two crewmembers wounded.
Except Air Arabia all major Gulf carriers cancelled operations after the June 25 attack.
“Emirates becomes the second major airline to resume service after a short break,” a senior Civil Aviation Authority official told Daily Times as the flight to Dubai took off from the Bachaa Khan International Airport at its scheduled time.
Qatar Airways had resumed operations and was making good business from this route carrying thousands of Pakistani nationals to work in the Gulf and the Middle Eastern countries.
“Etihad Airways will also resume operations next week,” said the CAA official that requested anonymity.
