Cathay to suspend Pakistan flights
(06-17 19:24)

Cathay Pacific says it will suspend all flights to and from Pakistan indefinitely, starting from June the 29th.
The decision comes following last week's attack on Karachi airport, which left 38 people dead including the 10 attackers.
In a statement, the airline explained that the suspension is a commercial decision, and said there'll be 14 more flights to and from Karachi before the service is halted to cater for those travelling to Pakistan ahead of the holy month of Ramadan. --RTHK
