At least 10 flights were cancelled and eight had to be delayed at Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport as a result of terrible weather caused by the port city’s persistent, heavy downpours since Sunday morning.
Five PIA aircraft that were due to depart from the city, including PK-306, PK-370, PK-341, and PK-349, have experienced delays, according to a CAA spokeswoman.
Due to bad weather, a number of other flights with overseas destinations were either postponed or cancelled from Karachi airport.
