According to news sources, today Shaheen Air flight NL-724 from Riyadh to Peshawar diverted and landed at Karachi Airport due to bad weather in Peshawar.

Although the airline has assured passengers that they will be flown to Peshawar from Karachi on January 5 but passengers are refusing to disembark the aircraft at Karachi and demanding to be flown to Peshawar. Seems passengers need to be informed that, even if weather improves, night flight operations are not allowed at Peshawar Airport.
