KARACHI: Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plans to discontinue its Islamabad-Leeds-Islamabad flight from June 11, sources said on Tuesday.
The twice weekly flight has the seat occupancy of 82.5 percent and yet the corporation has decided to discontinue it, the sources told The News.
The spokesperson for the national flag carrier confirmed that the flight is being discontinued, saying that it is not a profitable operation.
He said that the airline is flying around eight flights a week from Manchester, which is at a 50 minutes distance from Leeds, therefore, the Leeds passengers could take the Manchester flights.
Despite around eight flights to Manchester, the Leeds flight on every Saturday and Sunday had the seat occupancy of 82.5 percent. The sources said that Airblue might get the regulatory permission to operate on this route.
