PIA suspends flight operations to China and Japan

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has discontinued its flight operations for China and Japan for at least three weeks in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. While announcing the halt of flight operations on Monday, the airline spokesperson said that the ban is a precautionary measure. The decision on whether to resume flights or extend the ban will be taken next week.

The PIA management made this decision amid reports of increasing casualties due to the novel coronavirus. So far, the death toll in China has crossed 2,600-mark.
