An announcement has been made by British Airways to start flight operations in Pakistan from June. Three flights will fly every week from Islamabad to London.

For his cooperation, the British Airways officials thanked Zulfiqar Bukhari. Furthermore, they admired the facilities available at the Islamabad Airport. The British delegation said that the Islamabad Airport can be counted as one of the few best airports in the region, specifically considering its design.
Bukhari said that once British Airways starts operations in Pakistan, it will not just boost tourism in the country but also help in creating a positive image of Pakistan across the globe.
