Nov 28, 2021: The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on Saturday denied rumors circulating on social media platforms that Quetta International Airport had been closed.
According to a report published in Express News, it was claimed in social media posts that flights from Quetta have been canceled due to unknown reasons. However, CAA spokesman Saifullah Khan said in a statement that the “rumors” were baseless. The spokesman said the airport’s main runway was being rebuilt, so it would not be available for flights from November 27.
However, he also said a secondary runway is being used as alternative.
Khan added that some airlines were adapting their operations to the new situation. PIA, Serene Air and Air Sial flights continue, but Air Blue suspended its operation until December 31. He added that Fly Dubai had canceled its flight for Sunday while Air Arabia had canceled its flight on Monday.
