PIA flight schedules show no flights to/from Sibbi Airport operated by the airline currently.

Probably there are plans to start flights to/from Sibbi Airport in the near future.

Sibbi is in Bauchistan near Quetta actually. Temparture wise, supposed to be the hottest spot in Pakistan.

It is also possible that goverment of pakistan may be planning to prepare another airbase for drones to fly.so that they can make attacks on northern areas of Pakistan.

1986 PIA timetable shows non-stop flights operated with Fokker F-27 from Sibbi (also spelled as Sibi) to Sukkur and Quetta. Both flights were once a week.

I think PIA stopped operating flights to/from Sibbi in late 1980s or in 1990s.
