BA Coming to Lahore!
Lahore – dubbed locally as the ‘City of Gardens’ will become the second city in Pakistan that British Airways will connect to London with direct flights.
The airline already flies everyday from the city of Islamabad, “connecting friends and family as well as business contacts,” said a spokesperson for the airline.
In his comments, Christian Turner said the first ever British Airways flights to Lahore was a sign of confidence in Pakistan, and the deepening ties between “our two countries. I hope it will open up even more opportunities for business links, people-to-people ties and tourism.
The carrier’s spokesperson added:
“Flights will be operated by a Boeing 787-8 departing from Heathrow Terminal 5, landing into Lahore’s International Airport.”
