The state airline will operate two direct flights per week, one from Karachi and one from Lahore.
The first flight will take off from Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport on March 16, and the second will take off from Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport on March 19, and continue until the end of the year.
The national flag carrier announced these flights in response to a long-standing demand from citizens of both countries, as well as Pakistanis living in Azerbaijan’s capital.
This move will allow Pakistanis to travel directly to the popular tourist destination from Karachi and Lahore.
While congratulating the state airline’s officials on finalizing the flight arrangements, PIA Chief Executive Officer Air Marshal Arshad Malik stated that there are plans to expand the national flag carrier’s network.
He also directed the airline’s departments to provide the best services possible to passengers.
