Fakhre Alam becomes first Pakistani to circumnavigate globe sole

Lahore: The TV host had planned to become the first Pakistani to circumnavigate the globe solo and he made it happen. Fakhre Alam took to Twitter to share that Mission Parwaaz has been accomplished.

The star who faced a major setback during the final leg of his journey when he was detained at the Russian airport for traveling with an expired visa managed to reach out to Pakistani Ambassador to Russia Qazi Khalil Ullah who then provided assistance to the actor in the continuation of his mission.

“Pleased to confirm that visa [has been] granted to Fakhre Alam by authorities of Russian Federation today in the morning,” Dr Faisal said in his tweet and added that Pakistan’s ambassador to Russia had “remained in touch with Fakhar-e-Alam throughout his stay” at Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk Airport.

Before leaving for his mission, Fakhre Alam told Images, “I have to do 26000 nautical miles and fly through all the mediums of the planet to achieve circumnavigation. We’re aiming for a 28-day schedule. The rules state I have to use the same aircraft and be in control of it at all time. I’ll be flying to 30 airports around the world.”

As the singer said three years ago, Mission Parwaaz is for the people of Pakistan.
