Virgin Atlantic Set to Launch New Services to Pakistan
Virgin Atlantic is set to expand its global network with new services from both Manchester and London to Pakistan with effect from December 2020.
The airline will operate three new routes from the UK to Pakistan including London Heathrow to Lahore, London Heathrow to Islamabad, and Manchester to Islamabad.
The new services will go on sale in September 2020, and will boast Virgin Atlantic’s Upper Class, Premium and Economy Light, Classic, and Delight offering.
The services will offer seamless connections for customers travelling from other destinations to Pakistan. Connections from European destinations will also be available through codeshare and interline partners.
Pakistan has the seventh largest diaspora in the world. Adventurous travellers will enjoy the UNESCO sights of Lahore, as well as explore the foothills of the Himalayas outside Islamabad.
Virgin Atlantic will also offer efficient belly-cargo service presenting new opportunities for companies looking to export and import goods such as fresh produce and textiles.
