Pakistan flights to continue

07.01.10

A threat to scrap direct flights between Glasgow Airport and Lahore, Pakistan has been lifted, the BBC reports. Senior officials at Pakistan International Airlines held talks with Glasgow Airport managers twice yesterday, with city council officials and Pakistan's consul-general in Scotland were also involved in the talks.

After the talks it was agreed there would be improved efforts to market the twice-weekly flights, and to give the airline a higher profile in Scotland. The new marketing drive will focus leaders of the Pakistani community in Scotland to seek to increase use of the route, otherwise it faces a renewed threat of loss.

It is reported that planes on the route have been operating at 64% of capacity, whereas the airline needs to fill at least 74% of seats if they are to break-even. State-owned PIA faces competition for Pakistani-Scots flying to visit family in the sub-continent from Emirates, which flies more frequently between Glasgow and Dubai, with onward connections to Pakistan.
