ISLAMABAD: Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) launched its Air Safari flight Today June, 19 2021 to revive tourism in the country
According to details, the airline’s first Air Safari scenic flight took off from Islamabad International Airport carrying 91 tourists, including foreigners from up to 13 countries.
Energy Minister Hammad Azhar was also among the foreign tourists on the inaugural Air Safari flight that flew over the country’s towering snow-capped peaks, including K2, Nanga Parbat and Broad Peak, before landing in Skardu.
The “Sadpara Air Safari”, named after the famous mountaineer Ali Sadpara, will operate every Saturday from Islamabad airport and its one-way ride will cost Rs 25,000.
In 2018, the national airline announced the launch of the Air Safari service. However, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) had suspended the planned commercial launch of the Safari flight, days after it reportedly announced the service due to operational difficulties.
To promote tourism, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) last week issued a TPRI (Promotion of Tourism and Regional Integration) license to a newly launched private airline called North Air.
