KARACHI – After eight days of stalled operations due to the ongoing protests by the airline employees, the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) restored its domestic flights on Tuesday.

According to details, the first domestic flight to take off was PK-308, which left Karachi for Islamabad, restoring the operations after days of strike by workers protesting against privatisation of the national flag carrier.

The Pakistan Air Lines Pilot Association (PALPA) did not endorse the stance taken by the PIA’s Joint Action Committee (JAC) and called for resuming the flight operations.
