London: UK flag carrier, British Airways, said yesterday it has cancelled its London Heathrow-Islamabad service in response to the 20 September Marriott hotel bombing in Islamabad, the capital city of Pakistan.
The service operates six times a week to the Pakistani capital. The blast killed at least 50 people and injured another 200.
"In light of the security situation in Pakistan, British Airways has cancelled its flights from Islamabad to Heathrow indefinitely," the carrier said. "The safety and security of our customers, our staff and our operation is always our absolute priority."
