People wishing to travel from Lahore to Skardu and vice versa will now not be required to take lengthy highway journeys or oblique flights anymore because the Pakistan International Airlines on Wednesday kicked-started direct flight operations from the capital of Punjab to the scenic valley.

As reported by Geo.television, a PIA spokesperson confirmed that the primary direct flight of the nationwide service took off from  Lahore on Wednesday, April 7, and landed in Skardu the identical day with 153 passengers aboard.

The spokesman added that every week, two flights can be operated from Lahore to Skardu.

Last month, PIA had began flights to and from Saidu Sharif Airport in Swat after a spot of 17 years.
