Minister advises using private airlines for flights to perform the Hajj

To make the Hajj as simple as possible for its citizens, Pakistan’s interim minister of religion, Aneeq Ahmed, has suggested employing private airplane services.

The announcement follows the recent decision by Pakistan’s national airline to cease a significant portion of its planes due to a precarious financial situation. The state-owned airline, which was already in risk of running into debt, requested Rs23b ($76 million) in government help but was denied.

In order to enhance the pilgrimage experience for its inhabitants, Ahmed proceeded by suggesting that the government would think about utilizing the services of private airlines if reasonable transit fares offered.

Muslims who are financially secure are required to perform the Hajj at least once during their lives. It is one of Islam’s Five Pillars. The four-day pilgrimage consists of rituals carried out at Makkah and its vicinity in western Saudi Arabia.
