He can fly Gulf Air as well:

GF: LHE-DXB-BAH then to SYD via SIN

or he can fly from Khi as well:
GF: KHI-BAH then to SYD via SIN.


And i beleive it will be cheaper as well coz Gulf Air is very cheap for european and other sectors then south asia.
Up in the air is where I fly I like 2 soar way up high ;)

The quickest and best option, and probably the cheapest option.

Lahore-Bangkok-Sydney on Thai International.

Lahore-Karachi-Singapore (PIA)
Singapore-Sydney (SIA)

is another option, but its longer and more expensive as two carriers are involved.

Usually when one airline is involved, the ticket is cheaper.

As an Aussie,I can tell you that Amaad is correct. Thai are by far the most cheap.Other options would include Malaysia or Emirates, but be careful of the latter since the prices vary according to the route e.g SYD-DXB direct is on an A340-500 and much more expensive than SYD-BKK-DXB which is operated by a B777-300. I don't know if they're any good for inbound travel, but your friend might try www.bestflights.com.au or www.airfare.com.au who always have the best deals from Oz.Hope your friend has a good time in our land down-under.
Salaam, Mike.

Yep, Thai from Lahore is best, otherwise it will mean using two airlines that will bump up the price quite abit !!

According to the official website, LHE-BKK-SYD is 85914.00 Pakistani Rupees during this month. Although its best to go to your travel agent for a better deal... :wink:
