PIA is going to start night flight operations from Peshawar soon. The airline is revising flights schedule for Peshawar accordingly.

PIA had ended night flights to & from Peshawar after airline's Airbus A310-300 (AP-BGN) performing flight PK-756 from Riyadh received gunfire hits from the ground during landing approach to Peshawar Airport on June 24, 2014. A passenger aboard the aircraft received fatal bullet injury in that incident.

PIA Will Resume Night Flying to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

Karachi, December 18, 2018:
PIA will facilitate Khyber Pakhtunkhwa passengers by revising its flight schedule upon resumption of Night Operation in Peshawar. The night flying was discontinued four years ago due aviation safety concerns. President and CEO PIA Air Marshal Arshad Malik thanked the Federal Minister for Aviation for his prompt action and vigorous efforts in resolving the matter with all concerned quarters especially the security agencies for lifting the restrictions. The issue was highlighted to Federal Minister for Aviation Muhammad Mian Soomro during his visit to PIA head Office last Friday.

PIA spokesman said that after removal of restriction, PIA will revise its flight schedule for Peshawar adding more flights for the convenience of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa public as they were facing difficulties in connectivity, he concluded.

Night flight landings will resume soon at Peshawar Airport informed Aviation Minister Muhammad Mian Soomro and CEO PIA Air Marshal Arshad Malik today.

The delayed flights had to land at Islamabad and Lahore from where passengers had to be transported to Peshawar by buses. The procedure caused inconvenience to passengers.

Night flight operations were suspended at Peshawar Airport four years ago after a PIA Airbus A310-300 (AP-BGN) on landing approach to the airport was hit by ground fire on June 24, 2014.

Pakistan Air Force (PAF) resumed night flight operations from PAF Base Peshawar two years ago. The air base is attached to the airport in Peshawar.

However, the previous PIA managements did not take interest in resuming airline's night flights at the airport.

According to news sources:

Resumption of night flight operations at Peshawar Airport will be considered after completion of watch towers construction in areas around the airport.

So far, Peshawar Airport management has not received instructions from Pakistan CAA Headquarters in Karachi to resume night flight operations at the airport.

Night flight operations cannot be resumed without provincial government's safety assurance for landing/departing aircraft in areas around the airport.

So far, Interior Ministry and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police have not made final decision on resumption of night flight operations at Peshawar Airport.
