Facing some sort of technical malfunction, a Lahore-bound PIA’s plane made emergency landing on Quetta Airport.

According to sources placed with the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), its flight PK206 was en route to Lahore from Kuwait when it faced some technical snag that led to its emergency landing on Quetta’s airport.

The plane was carrying as many as 160 passengers who were struck with extreme panic as the plane made emergency landing, according sources. However, the PIA sources said it was due to a nominal technical glitch that the plane was safely flown into the city’s airport.
