KARACHI: Shaheen International Airline (SAI) will despatch it flight Sunday night to Guanzhou, China to carry back Pakistani passengers stranded there for past few days.

A spokesman of Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) in an announcement here Sunday said the objection raised by the authority with regard to the fitness of the SAI plane scheduled to carry back home the stranded passengers have been addressed.

The required hosepipes have arrived from abroad and are presently in process of customs clearance and consequently will be fitted in due course enabling the carrier to fly without any sort of risk, elaborated the spokesman.

It was reminded that SAI failing to clear dues amounting Rs.1.5 billion to CAA was prohibited to utilize facilities and services offered by the authority, however, on purely humanitarian grounds it was allowed to carry back the Pakistanis who had booked their seats, prior to the imposed ban, with SAI from Guanzhou to different parts of the country.
