Pakistan International Airlines Announces Direct New York Flights
Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) looks like it might be heading back to New York. The Karachi based airline is tentatively set to start flying direct between Islamabad and New York later in 2020.
It will mark the airline’s return to New York after abandoning the route in 2017. While New York is a schmick destination on any airline’s departure board, the route was losing money for PIA. In times past, PIA has variously flown to Chicago, Houston, San Francisco, New York and Washington D.C.
The previous New York bound PIA flight went via Manchester in the UK. This time around, PIA plans to fly direct, initially three times a week but with a view to increasing frequency. The airline has several Boeing 777s that could make the distance.
