It is pertinent to mention here that PIA has operated a flight to Melbourne for the first time in the history.

On April 24, the PIA aircraft had departed for Australia to bring back Pakistanis. The spokesperson of the national flag-carrier had said that a special flight departed for Melbourne with more than 300 passengers on board.

The national airline is consistently serving the nationals trapped in foreign countries due to suspension of the flight operations following the spread of coronavirus pandemic.
