KARACHI, Pakistan, Feb 3 (Reuters) - Pakistan said on Monday said it is resuming flights to and from China, days after it suspended them due to a rapidly spreading virus outbreak.
Pakistan had suspended operations on Friday, a day after the World Health Organization declared the epidemic a global health emergency.
“We are resuming flight operations with China, a China Southern Airlines flight with 145 passengers on board will land at 9 am at Islamabad International Airport on Monday,” additional secretary of aviation Abdul Sattar Khokhar told Reuters by text message.
A growing number of airlines have suspended flights to China due to the coronavirus outbreak and shrinking demand. (Reporting by Syed Raza Hassan; Editing by Kim Coghill)
