Cathay Pacific to temporarily suspend flights to Pakistan

Cathay Pacific Airways regrets to announce the temporary suspension of its flights to Pakistan. The last Cathay Pacific flight to Karachi before the suspension will take place this Friday 28 September 2001. This difficult decision was taken due to the challenging economic conditions.

The airline has decided to suspend services to Karachi due to the softening of the global economy and its impact on the airline industry. It is looking to resume the services with the commencement of its winter schedule, which begins on 28 October 2001.

Cathay Pacific currently operates three return flights a week to Karachi. The airline sincerely regrets the inconvenience caused to its customers and hopes to resume services as soon as circumstances permit.


What about Cathay Pacific Colombo, Manchester and Zurich route? Will Cathay fly back to this 3 cities?

If its for commercial/economic reasons and not the looming threat in the region then why are they so eager to resume the service in a months time Confused

No idea, so far CX, SQ, BA, MS and LH cargo have suspended their Pakistan servcies, Im not sure but think that CA, AF cargo and Cargolux have too as PIA have been inundated with cargo requests, GF have suspended Peshawar, EK are reducing frequencies both EK and GF will suspend services once a decision has been reached by tehir management regarding the regional turmoil and MH are waiting for IATA to decide on what to do about their KHI service dont know anything about SR, by the way I quit my job at the airport in July so Im not that well informed about the situation Smile

Sorry Airmale,

I mean the fact they cancelled the route. They should tell the truth, people dont want to go to Pakistan and I dont see why they will on Oct 28th !!. I see this route being stopped for a long time.

I think CX were catering mostly to people travelling from the U.S west coast to Pakistan and vice versa especially Pakistani immigrants I also believe their Karachi-Bangkok leg was doing better than the Hong Kong one Smile
