- Haj and Umrah
and Umrah Operations
PIA, Pakistan's national airline, operates an
extensive two-month Haj operation each year, to and from Jeddah,
Haj, the holy pilgrimage undertaken by Muslims
from around the world in the twelfth month of the Islamic calendar
(Zilhaj), is one of the fundamental pillars of Islam. Muslims
endowed with good health and the economic means to undertake
the pilgrimage, perform this sacred duty at least once in their
life time. Haj is the largest congregation of the faithful in
recorded history. Over the last 1400 years, Muslims from across
the world, assemble in the House of Allah in Makkah, Saudi Arabia.
PIA, Pakistan's premier airline, transports thousands of pilgrims
each year, from several Pakistani cities to the Kingdom of Saudi
Arabia, at special rates.
Every year, PIA also schedules special flights on the Pakistan-
Jeddah-Pakistan sector to serve pilgrims on their way to Saudi
Arabia to perform Umrah.
