A Covid Vaccine consignment with Pakistan International Airline (PIA) special flight has arrived in Islamabad from China carrying 300,000 doses on Thursday.
The sources said PK6852 landed at the Islamabad airport from Beijing and added that around one million vaccines are being brought to Pakistan by three Boeing 777 planes.
It is expected that a second flight of PIA will arrive in Pakistan at 12 noon and the third at midnight.
“Three more PIA 777s arrived in #Beijing – #China to carry another large consignment of #COVID19 vaccines as part of a larger initiative to combat the pandemic,” the national airlines said on Twitter.
“On the behest of the Government of Pakistan, we would continue to serve this great nation at the time of crisis,” it added.
The spokesperson of PIA, Abdullah Hafeez Khan, had said a day earlier that three Boeing 777 planes had been sent to China for procurement of coronavirus vaccines.
