“We did not have any flights on the ground and we are watching the situation,” said Ghaith Al Ghaith, the chief executive of flydubai.
The Dubai carrier has four staff members on the ground but they are all safe. Flydubai has two flights to Karachi every day, and these were stopped as soon as the attack started, he said.
Monday morning, the Pakistan military cleared the airport of the terrorists with 29 killed in the gun fight. All 12 terrorists were killed after a 12-hour siege.
The curfew at the airport has been lifted.
“We have to ensure everything is safe to restart the operations,” said Sudhir Sreedharan, flydubai’s senior vice president for commercial operations for Indian subcontinent, Gulf and Africa regions.
