Qatar Airways (QA) cancelled at least two of its flights to Pakistan’s Peshawar city yesterday in the aftermath of a terror-related incident on the city’s main airport on Tuesday, Gulf Times has learnt.
A QA spokesperson confirmed that flight QR608, scheduled to fly from Doha to Peshawar yesterday evening, was cancelled along with QR609, scheduled from Peshawar to Doha early morning today (June 26).
A travel alert was also issued on the QA website asking passengers to contact their local QA office for further information.
About future flights to Peshawar, the QA spokesperson said that the decision was yet to be made. “The decision to cancel or continue operating more flights to Peshawar would be taken later,” she said.
QA normally operates daily flights to Peshawar.
On June 24, terrorists had opened fire on a Pakistan International Airlines flight coming from Riyadh as it approached the runway at the Peshawar airport, which left one woman passenger dead and two others, including a steward, injured.
The Pakistani press reported that other Gulf airlines, including Emirates and Etihad had also cancelled their flights to Peshawar until further notice.
