Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will operate flights to Saudi Arabia from tomorrow.

According to the details, the flight will depart from Lahore and Islamabad for Saudi Arabia.

Earlier, PIA had started booking for Saudi Arabia with permission from September 15.
PIA will use 777 and Airbus 320 aircraft for Saudi Arabia, PIA spokesman Abdullah Khan said.

Due to the huge rush on bookings, PIA has sought permission from the Saudi administration for 28 more flights after which flight operations will be expanded.

The national airline will operate 23 weekly flights to Saudi Arabia. PIA officials have asked the Saudi government to allow 26 flights a week. Initially, PIA will operate flights to three Saudi cities, Dammam, Jeddah and Riyadh.
