After experiencing an emergency due to excessive rains in Lahore, a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) Dammam-Lahore flight used Indian airspace.

According to sources, a PIA flight number PK-248 is unable to arrive at the Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore due to excessive rainfall. While flying towards Multan, the pilot of the aircraft used Indian airspace.

The PIA pilot notified the Indian civil aviation authority of the emergency. The Indian aviation authorities later granted the PIA aircraft permission to use its airspace.

The flight was scheduled to fly over the Indian city of Firozpur before diverting to Multan. The plane eventually landed safely at Multan airport.

In March, an Indian flight heading for Doha made an emergency landing at Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport after a man died in mid-flight.

The CAA representative acknowledged that a passenger’s health deteriorated mid-flight on an Indian Airlines flight from New Delhi to Dubai.

The Air Traffic Controller at Karachi Airport granted the Indian pilot emergency landing authorization owing to a medical issue.

However, a Nigerian passenger named Abdullah, 60, died before the plane landed. The passenger’s death certificate was issued by CAA and NIH doctors.
