British Airways to resume Pakistan flights after 10 years

British Airways on Tuesday announced to resume flight operations to Pakistan after as many as 10 years.

The announcement was made by BA’s Head of Asia Pacific and Middle East Sales Robert Williams in a joint press conference with State Overseas Minister Zulfi Bukhari and Commerce Advisor Abdul Razak Dawood.

The BA representative said that the three-per-week flight operations will start from June 15, 2019 from Heathrow and New Islamabad International Airport, with tickets on sale from today starting at £499 return.

He said that the route would be operated by the state-of-the-art Boeing 787 Dreamliner landing into the newly-opened airport in Islamabad and Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport in London.

The flights will land at the new airport in Islamabad, Rawalpindi, which was opened earlier this year, and includes state of the art facilities that the previous terminal lacked.
