ISLAMABAD: Thai Airways is set to resume flight operations in Islamabad and Lahore from July 16, the airline’s management announced.
The Bangkok-based airliner had suspended flights to and from Islamabad and Lahore after Pakistan’s airspace was partially closed earlier this year during escalating Indo-Pak tensions. Passengers could only take a Thai flight from Karachi as a result.
While the airspace is still shut over northern entries, the airline announced that it would resume flights to and from the two cities by entering via south. This would ensure people are connected to the rest of the world via Bangkok.
Thai Airways announced that it will fly on Lahore-Bangkok route four times a week, on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, and on Islamabad-Bangkok route three times a week, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
