LONDON – Pakistan’s national airline carrier, PIA, has announced that they will launch services to Sydney in April. PIA wanted to connect New South Wales (NSW) with Lahore.
For the moment, PIA is going to fly to Sydney once a week. The new route will slash the current travel time to Sydney in half, from 25 hours to just under 13, with stopovers included.
PIA hasn’t announced a set date to launch its services, but we do know that they are going to depart on Friday from Lahore, arrive the next day, and return from Sydney on a Sunday which will arrive in Lahore the following day.
The flight will be operated by a Boeing 777-200LR, with 35 quite outdated business class seats, which will be rebranded as premium economy, and 275 economy seats.
This flight will have a codeshare with other airlines, including Etihad Airways, Turkish Airlines, WestJet, and FlyDubai.
