Finally! I have been wondering for years if it will ever happen. It seems like aimed at a weekend tourists. IS a covid-PCR test mandatory for GB?

Although I wonder how frequently, due to weather conditions, the flight will end up in Islamabad?

This is probably the longest domestic flight operated by PIA

Obviously not counting Lahore-Dacca and Karachi-Dacca before 1971.
