Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), which operates a weekly flight between Mumbai and Karachi, will suspend its service from May 11.
The national flag carrier of Pakistan operates the flight on Thursday.
“Pakistan International Airlines, in a communication to the authorities concerned, has said that its Karachi-Mumbai flight will not be open for sale (bookings) from May 11,” a company associated with the flight operation told PTI.
The communication did not specify the reason for suspension of its flight service. “Apart from the prevailing tension between India-Pakistan, the suspension of the service might be due to commercial reasons as well,” an official said.
The airline did not operate its service on May 4 as well, he said. However, PIA had informed the relevant authorities about the same in a communication last month, the official said.
