Pakistan International Airlines has started its Air Safari flight to promote tourism in the country.
As per details, the PIA’s first scenic Air Safari flight took off on Saturday from the Islamabad International Airport with 91 passengers, including foreigners from as many as 13 countries, on board.
The Minister for Power, Hammad Azhar, was also among the tourists abroad for the inaugural Air Safari flight. It flew over the country’s breathtaking snow-capped mountains, including K2, Nanga Parbat, and Broad Peak, before arriving in Skardu.
Named after the prominent Pakistani mountaineer Ali Sadpara, “Sadpara Air Safari” will operate every Saturday from the Islamabad airport. Its one-way fare will cost PKR 25,000.
In 2018, the national flag carrier had stated to begin Air Safari service. However, the PIA postponed its planned commercial launch of the Safari flight due to operational difficulties.
Moreover, to boost tourism, the Civil Aviation Authority last week issued license to a recently launched private airline called North Air.
