The Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority lifts ban on in-flight meal services for domestic flights only.
The Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority has directed lifting of ban regarding in-flight meal services for domestic flights only. According to a statement issued by the CAA, the restrictions regarding meals services on international flights will remain intact under the same regulations.
Domestic flights will now be permitted to provide passengers with food and beverages which were suspended for domestic and international flights, to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
The domestic passengers will be able to receive on-board food services from March 1, 2022, the CAA statement said. Along with the notification to un-ban on-flight meal services, the CAA has also ordered all local and international airlines to follow Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) strictly.
The CAA, in March 2021, had written a letter to the Aviation Division to recommend lifting the ban on in-flight meal services for passengers. But the permission had been granted nearly one year later.
