Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) today started its flight operation to Barcelona, as a B-777 aircraft left for the Spanish city via Paris from Benazir Bhutto International Airport.
Due to the tragic December 7 incident, all festivities planned earlier for the launch of this flight had been cancelled. In a somber mood, PIA CEO Bernd Hildenbrand saw off the passengers.
Hildenbrand said that with the resumption of flights to Barcelona, after a gap of nearly two years, passengers will have a convenient link between Pakistan and Spain.
PIA will operate two weekly flights to Barcelona, one each from Islamabad and Lahore, operating on Sundays and Tuesdays.
