The CAA has lifted its ban on Pakistan International Airlines flights (PIA) into the UK.
PIA’s permit to operate to the UK was withdrawn by the CAA on 30 June on safety grounds, halting its Heathrow, Birmingham and Manchester services.
It followed an order by the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (Easa) barring PIA from operating to the EU for six months.
However, the CAA confirmed on Monday (17 August) PIA’s UK ban had been lifted as of Friday (14 August).
Its Manchester-Islamabad and Birmingham-Islamabad have been allowed to resume using aircraft chartered by EU-registered carrier Hi Fly Limited.
"On 30 June 2020, the UK Civil Aviation Authority suspended permission for Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) to operate services to the United Kingdom," said the CAA.
