Sources said that the national flag carrier’s Boeing 777 aircraft, PK-789, with around 300 passengers on board met a ‘technical fault’ while flying over the Karachi airspace which led the pilot to seek permission from aviation authorities for an emergency landing.

The plane was granted permission by the authorities which later safely landed at Karachi airport, sources added. However, the details of the technical fault, passengers and flight number are due to be known.
