RAWALPINDI: Inbound flights to Pakistan will no longer be mandated to upload passengers’ data via ‘Pass Track App’, the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) announced on Friday.

The PCAA has issued a directive to all scheduled and chartered air carriers and all ground handling agencies, relaxing the regulation imposed to keep track of inbound passengers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The directive added that the app was being put on a hold, but warned that the restriction could be reimposed if the number of coronavirus cases rise again.

In an effort to curb the spread of Covid-19 and streamline passengers’ data, the CAA, on May 1, 2021 made it mandatory for inbound travellers to upload their data on the app and the airlines were asked to submit information.
