Virgin Atlantic (VS/VIR) has said it is suspending flights to Pakistan as part of its network review.

The termination means that flights from London Heathrow (LHR/EGLL) to Lahore will end on the 30th April and flights to Islamabad will end on the 9th July.

A spokesperson for the airline said: “As we continue to ramp up our flying programme in 2023, we’ve taken the opportunity to review our entire network and decided to make a few changes,

“Following this review, it is with regret that we’ve taken the difficult decision to suspend our services between London Heathrow and Pakistan.

“Since commencing operations in December 2020, we have been proud to offer choice for customers travelling between London and Manchester in the UK, and Islamabad and Lahore in Pakistan. During that time, we have also provided important cargo capacity, as well as delivering vital medical supplies.”

Virgin Atlantic will provide passengers booked on the routes beyond the end dates with alternative options for flights or a refund.
