Пътнически Боинг 737 с регистарационен номер (AP-BKC) и изпълняващ полет В4-213 от Карачи за Исламабад се е разбил в близост до международното летище в пакистанската столица. 127-те души на борда са загинали. Полетът вечер в сложни метеорологични условия (намалена видимост, буря и проливен дъжд) бил първи за възстановилата отскоро летателната дейност авиокомпания Бходжа Еър.
