A fire outbreak at Lahore airport's lounge area triggered chaos and disruption to international flights, particularly impacting the inaugural Hajj journeys. The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) attributed the incident to a short circuit, announcing swift containment measures.

Emergency responders acted promptly, containing the flames and preventing harm to individuals. However, the fire, originating from the immigration counter's ceiling, filled the lounge with smoke, necessitating passenger evacuation.

Broadcasted images showcased the turbulent scene, with billowing smoke engulfing the area. A specialized investigative team has been deployed to ascertain the fire's cause, with airport authorities noting significant damage to the immigration counter.

The incident's repercussions rippled through flight schedules, causing delays for the first Hajj departure and five other international flights, including Qatar Airways flight QR 629.

Despite disruptions, incoming international flights continued to land at Lahore airport without diversions. The absence of an emergency declaration highlighted authorities' efforts to manage the situation efficiently.

The CAA assured the public that international flight operations were rerouted to the domestic departure lounge, with the fire situation brought under control by early morning. Currently, both Hajj and international flights are being accommodated through domestic facilities, with plans to resume regular domestic flight operations soon.

Amidst the aftermath, priority is placed on ensuring smooth immigration processes for arriving flights, minimizing disruptions. The concerted efforts aim to mitigate the incident's impact on airport operations and passenger journeys.
