Regular flight operations to Swat resumed by PIA after 17 years

The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has restored its regular flight operations to Swat after a gap of 17 years. The restoration of flights to Swat was aimed at boosting tourism in the scenic valley, with two flights operating from Islamabad every week. The operation will connect with flights from Karachi and Lahore. The flights to the city were earlier closed due to financial constraints and terrorism.

Flight PK-650, carrying tourists as well Minister for Aviation Ghulam Sarwar Khan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Chief Minister Mahmood Khan and federal minister Murad Saeed, landed at the picturesque valley at 11am.
