Shaheen Air flight will leave tonight to bring back stranded Pakistanis
BEIJING (92 News) – A flight of the Shaheen Air International will leave for China tonight to bring back stranded Pakistanis in Guangzhou.
According to Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) spokesperson Pervez George, the faulty parts of the Shaheen Air’s plane have arrived and will be fixed now. He expressed hope that the work will be completed in a couple of hours and the plane will be ready to fly to China.
The CAA spokesperson further said that about 324 passengers are stranded in Guangzhou. He said that the CAA is also in contact with their counterparts in China to facilitate this arrangement.
Earlier, it was reported that Shaheen Air had sought the help of Pakistan International Airline to bring back the stranded passengers.
As many as 300 Pakistanis were left stranded in the Chinese port city of Guangzhou after their Shaheen Air flight was abruptly cancelled on July 29, following a dispute over payment of arrears totalling over Rs1.5 billion between the airline and the CAA.
