Leeds Bradford Airport and Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) have announced that a service the two companies run to Islamabad will continue to operate.
The service is a twice weekly one, which uses an A310 aircraft with economy and business class, and operates on Wednesday and Saturday.
"We would like to thank the Bradford and wider Yorkshire community for its support in retaining this vital international link. We are now looking forward to building our relationship with PIA to develop and grow traffic on this flagship route," Tony Hallwood, commercial and aviation development director at Leeds Bradford Airport, said.
Meanwhile, Rashid Aziz, general manager of revenue management at PIA's head office, said that the airline decided that it would continue to run the service to benefit the Pakistani and Kashmiri communities.
Passengers using Leeds Bradford Airport can also choose to fly to a number of destinations across North America and Europe, including New York, Kittila, Finland, Krakow and Barcelona.
