Can't wait? We neither!
PIA (Pakistan International Airlines) has decided to relaunch its Sadpara Air Safari service on the 12th of June, 2021.

Every Saturday, starting from the 12th of June, 2021, the plane will depart from Islamabad International Airport (ISB) to the northern areas.
The plane will fly over one of the highest mountains and mesmerizing lakes and planes.
These sites include K2, Nanga Parbat, Gasherbrum peaks, Deosai plains, and Saif ul Maluk Lake.
Every passenger will be provided a personal window seat to fully enjoy the experience of the Air-Safari.
The flight time is expected to be approximately one hour.
During the journey, the captain of the plane will enlighten the passengers with live commentary and his/her in-depth knowledge of the route and the peaks that pierce the clouds.
After landing at Skardu Airport (KDU), PIA will provide buses that will take the passengers to Shangrila Hotel for a complimentary hi-tea.
The flight is expected to depart after two hours of its arrival.
Nevertheless, it will be up to the passenger if he/she wants to return on the same flight or on any other flight of choice.
It is pertinent to note that the return flight from Skardu will be operated normally.
