Travellers in the Yorkshire area will soon be able to catch direct flights to Pakistan from Leeds/Bradford Airport.
Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will launch a service connecting Leeds to Islamabad, the capital of the Asian country, on July 2nd.
Travellers will be able to access the flight twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Tony Hallwood, commercial and aviation development director at Leeds/Bradford, said: "A direct flight to Islamabad, Pakistan by PIA, one the leading international airlines, is a major achievement for the airport and we are proud of our success."
Captain Mohammad Aijaz Haroon, the airline’s managing director, added: "PIA’s flight operation on the said sector meets the demand of our customers in the Bradford and wider Yorkshire region as well as the airline’s customers in Islamabad, Pakistan."
June has been a busy month for Leeds/Bradford, after Jet2.com announced that it would begin offering holidays to Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt from the airport, which will represent the first time a tour operator and airline has flown to the destination from Yorkshire.
