During a day-long visit to the region, Imran Khan inaugurated the Skardu International Airport and Jaglot-Skardu road. Skardu’s airport had previously been used only for domestic flights. The airport’s status, however, was elevated on December 2 when it began welcoming international flights as well. The Prime Minister spoke about the airport’s elevation to an international airport at Municipal Stadium Skardu.
GB has the “most beautiful mountain scenery in the world,” the premier said. However, he lamented that people did not know enough about it due to the difficulty of traveling.
