British Airways (BA) announced that it will fly from Heathrow to Islamabad, the capital city of Pakistan, from June 02, 2019.
The route will launch as a three-per-week service, operated on a three-class Boeing 787 Dreamliner – BA’s newest long-haul fleet that is 20 percent more fuel efficient than other aircraft and features larger windows, mood lighting and the latest inflight entertainment.
Robert Williams, head of sales, Asia Pacific and the Middle East, BA, said, “It is exciting to be flying between Islamabad and Heathrow from 2019, which we believe will be particularly popular with the British Pakistani community who want to visit, or be visited by, their relatives. On the route, customers will enjoy the very best in flying. Not only is it being operated on our newest long-haul aircraft, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, but it will also be landing in to the new airport in Islamabad, which opened earlier this year.”
