Once a carrier is blacklisted by EASA they can't operate any flights to Europe, this also includes overflying the European airspace. If they still want to go to North America they would probably have to go East.
PIA will need to prove it's safety has improved, otherwise the ban can be extended for another 3 months. If they have can provide evidence that they have improved their safety, training whatever, they will be able to operate to the EU again on the 1st of January 2021.
According to news sources, the EU will still allow overlying of it's territory until further notice:

In German only I'm afraid.
Thanks for the link! Didn't expect them to still be allowed to overfly the EU, normally that is included in a ban.
I think if Europe banned overflights they could hit us back with a reciprocal ban, which would affect a lot of Europe to Asia flights. Plus where are they going to fly anyway - maybe just the odd ultra long haul to USA/Canada and that will be with their most senior pilots.
