Shaheen Air brings back pilgrims from Saudi Arabia

KARACHI: Shaheen Air International (SAI) on Sunday brought back more than 200 Pakistani Hujjaj from Madina, Saudi Arabia

The pilgrims were stranded in Saudi Aribia as  Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) refused to extend its Regular Public Transport license to the SAI over non-payment of dues.

The flight NL-704 arrived at Karachi Airport on Sunday early morning.

SAI Director Marketing Zohaib Hassan on the occasion stated “We have brought back our Hujjaj who were stranded in Madina. All the passengers reached Karachi safely. Rest assured we tried our best to take care of them in the best possible manner while they were in Madina.”

He also apologised to our passengers for the inconvenience caused due to CAA and assure smooth operation of the remaining  flights if CAA allowed.
