Since the outbreak of COVID-19 and grounding of operations, Emirates has previously operated only special flights to Pakistan to repatriate stranded people from the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
However, from June 8, the Dubai-based airline announced the resumption of weekly scheduled passenger flights from Pakistan to Dubai. It is being resumed after over two months of travel restrictions imposed globally due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
As per Baaghi TV’s reliable source, CAA is giving departure timings as per their personal preference which is leading to a loss of finances to airlines hoping to commence operations in Pakistan, including Emirates, who are losing their planned connections.
It is to be noted that Emirates, since its inception, has performed on a basis of connecting flights and stop-overs with fixed schedules of departures and landings, respectively.
Thereby, the report that CAA has allegedly stressed on the condition that they will decide the departure slots with personal benefit to them irrespective of the losses faced by the airlines, is a show of their obvious corruption and duplicity of actions that is meant to malign the state’s reputation and economy.
It is pertinent to note, that as per reports of Baaghi TV, this unjust and irrational behavior of the CAA has coerced Emirates to immediately suspend its operations within the country to safeguard its personal and international interests as an airline and business.
Thereby, Emirates Airlines has decided to suspend their operations against the obvious corruption and ulterior motives of the CAA.
