British Airways (BA/BAW) has announced that it plans to added a second route to Pakistan, from London Heathrow to Lahore.
The move comes just days after Virgin Atlantic announced that it was launching services to Islamabad and Lahore from London and Manchester.
BA director of network and alliances, Neil Chernoff, said: ““Our new flights will give us the opportunity to open up more of Pakistan to travelers from the UK, so they can experience its delights and rich culture,”
Adding: “We also think this will be hugely popular with the British Pakistani community, giving them more convenient options to visit family and friends.”
The first flight will operate on 12th October, a month before Virgin’s operations begin.
