Today, Shaheen Air Airbus A330-200 registration AP-BMI performed Lahore to Guangzhou flight NL-892.

Did Pakistan CAA give special permission for operation of this flight also? Or the airline is now allowed to perform flights on this route?

Recently, Pakistan CAA had allowed operation of Shaheen Air international flights between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia only.
