Karachi and Faisalabad flights have been increased to a total of seven from five. Further details about the exact timing and days can been gathered from PIA’s website.
Karachi and Sialkot previously only had one weekly flight serving but after this, the number has been increased to four weekly flights between both the cities.
All of these flights started their services from 30th October. Of all the added flights, three flights (per week) are operated by A320 and the rest are to be handled by by ATR aircraft.
The increase in the frequency of flights will allow tourism to flourish in Pakistan along with facilitating the citizens.
