The government has made a health declaration form compulsory for all passengers entering Pakistan. During his visit to the International Airport (IIA) in Islamabad, Hassan Nasir Jamy, Secretary of Aviation, issued the order.
Jamy asked the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) that all airlines should collect this undertaking from their passengers before entering the country. The initiative is part of the government’s measures against the deadly coronavirus, he said.
He visited the health desks at the airport and inquired the doctors and paramedics on duty if they were facing any issues carrying out their duties. He asked how else the government can facilitate the public and passengers.
Jamy also stopped by the free tea stalls for passengers established by the aviation authority. He was also briefed on the land acquisition for extension of the airport.
The federal secretary reiterated the government’s commitment to the provision of better facilities to passengers at Islamabad airport.
