IAG Cargo Launches New Direct Route to Lahore, Pakistan

Shameer Nasarulla, Area Commercial Manager for Middle East, Pakistan & Bangladesh, IAG Cargo, said: “We’re very pleased to be opening this new route and to add Lahore to our network of over 350 destinations. Lahore is home to many manufacturers of important goods and is an important market for computer equipment, electrical machinery and auto spares parts from Europe and the US. IAG Cargo will now also be able to play a bigger part in the Mango harvesting season – an important moment in the year for Pakistani exporters.”

The British High Commissioner to Pakistan, Dr Christian Turner, said: “The first ever British Airways flights to Lahore is a sign of confidence in Pakistan, and the deepening ties between our two countries. I hope it will open up even more opportunities for business links, people-to-people ties and tourism.”
