British Airways are planning a return to an old destination – with Islamabad, Pakistan being added back to the network.
The airline is planning a three times a week service to Islamabad, from June 2019.
The timetable looks like this:
DEPART LHR 09:15 ARRIVE ISB 09:55 Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays DEPART ISB 11:40 ARRIVE LHR 16:00 Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays Commences 2nd June 2019 Booked Equipment: British Airways Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner Data: British Airways
British Airways has today announced that it will fly from Heathrow to Islamabad, the capital city of Pakistan, from June 2, 2019. Tickets are on sale from today.
The airline will use a three-class Boeing 787 Dreamliner, split by Club World (Business class), World Traveller Plus (premium economy) and World Traveller (economy)
Leadi-in Prices have been set from £499 for World Traveller, £773 for World Traveller Plus and £1,799 for Club World. All prices are return prices
On the re-launch of the Islamabad route, Robert Williams, Head of Sales for Asia Pacific and the Middle East, said:
“It’s exciting to be flying between Islamabad and Heathrow from next year, 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.”
To Fly, To Return
British Airways will face up against national carrier Pakistan Airlines on this route, who operate from London Heathrow Airport – as well as Manchester and Birmingham Airports.
After a break of 10 years after a hotel bombing, it seems the airline is resuming its suspended service
