: Pakistan International Airlines will suspend its flights between Karachi and Mumbai from tomorrow due to commercial considerations, a senior airline official has said.

PIA operated two flights in a week (Monday and Thursday) between Karachi and Mumbai.

However, the PIA’s Lahore-Delhi flight operation will continue as traffic volume on this route is satisfactory, the PIA official said.

The move comes amid a strain in Indo-Pak ties following the beheading of two Indian soldiers by the Pakistan military in Jammu and Kashmir.

The PIA administration, however, dismissed media reports that the Karachi-Mumbai operation is being suspended due to tense relations between India and Pakistan.
