    Lahore International Airport

    Welcome message at Lahore International Airport

    The new Lahore Airport was opened in 2003. Compared to the old one, it is a huge improvement, because it now is very modern, spacious and has all the facilities that you would expect from an international airport.

    I actually feel that it is "under-utilized" at the moment because during the day you will see most of the departure/arrival gates empty. So they definitely have capacity to cater for additional flights from international destinations.

    Central Asia/Uzbekistan to Lahore, Pakistan

    by Pakistaniguy Written Nov 8, 2006

    Now you can fly to Lahore even from/via Central Asia - UZBEKISTAN. Uzbekistan airways has started 3x week service to/from Tashkent-Lahore. They fly from Lahore to Tashkent on Tuesdays (11.00 hrs), Wednesdays (22.30 hrs) & Fridays (11.15 hrs), arrving in Tashkent after 2 hrs.

    On Tuesday, there are good connections further from Tashkent to other European cities like London, Paris & Rome where as on the other days there are over night stay in Tashkent before your connecting flight.

    Their current (November 2006) oneway fare from Lahore via Tashkent to London/Paris/Frankfurt is 26,000 Pakistani Rupees/430 USD (1 USD=60.5 PKRs.)

  • Saudi Airlines from Jeddah to Lahore

    by Digi Written Feb 16, 2004
    Saudi 747-100

    I had a great experience flying Saudi from JFK to JED.

    I cant say the same for the flight from Jeddah to Lahore. The Plane was a 747 Jumbo Jet, however it was an older version and lacked TV screens and the like. It looked like it needed some repairs. Not only that, but the inside seemed to have some broken parts. I wasn't feeling too confident when I saw the bathroom wall detach slightly from the cabin ceiling.

    The food was ok, and the air hostesses were nice and spoke Urdu. However, the plane was horrible, and it smelled. Plus, on my return flight from Lahore to Riyadh, there were many people who seemed to have never flown before, and they were trying to smoke in the plane, and spitting. What a shame.

    It seems that Saudi gives first class treatment to Westerners flying to Saudi from Europe or North America. But when people from the third world fly from Saudi to their native countries, they hoard them in planes like animals. Typical

  • PIA to Lahore from JFK

    by Digi Updated Feb 16, 2004
    A PIA Jumbo Jet

    I last flew PIA to Lahore in 1999. The flight made a quick stop at Shannon in Ireland.

    While the flight was only about half an hour late, the service on the plane was a mixed bag. The food isn't too bad, but the bathrooms get dirty quick. They ran out of pillows and blankets, and when I asked the Air host how this had happened, he simply remarked that they had only packed about 25 on the plane. Consider that the plane holds about 350 people, that was odd.

    My biggest complaint though is not due to PIA itself. Its due to the small seats found in all airplanes. Im a tall guy, so Im always cramped, it's not helped by Pakistani aunties who want to lean back and crush my legs on a 16 hour flight.

    Arent we supposed to have teleportation by now?

    However, the 747s PIA uses do have TV sets in each seat, which helps to numb your mind for the flight. However, the sound wasnt always working, I must have spent most of the flight watching the map of where we were.

    Allama Iqbal Intl. Airport

    This is the view of the airport while sitting inside the plane on Allama Iqbal International Airport, Lahore. Here in the picture you can see the name of the airport written in the local language which is Urdu. It's written form is very similar to Arabic and Perssian.

    This is the design of the newly opened up Lahore Airport. It is better than the old one because it is bigger, better and has more airlines operating through it.

    The most worst & weird Air line is AIR BLUE. Its better to travel by bus instead of AIR BLUE aircraft.
