The first two flights will depart tomorrow for Poland, where they will be repatriated to safety and reunited with their families. “PIA always goes above and beyond when the nation requires it,” according to a PIA statement.

It is expected that the PIA planes will land in Poland’s capital of Warsaw because they were unable to land at airports near the Ukrainian border, particularly Lublin, due to a lack of adequate arrangements. The evacuation flights will be carried out by Boeing 777 aircraft provided by the airline.
