British Airways to resume its flights to Pakistan - good news! Hope they hv same world class standards tht they once had for us. This development today speaks volumes abt Pakistan’s security situation & r dedicated LEAs. Competition for PIA but thn competitors r needed to improve
Thank You Nawaz Sharif for Islamabad International Airport .
Will break the monopoly of the Middle Eastern airlines. Wonder how this will impact local airlines, who complained of a preference towards international carriers
Nobody could have imagined this. Pakistan it is time for your glorious days to return. Thank you @sayedzbukhari @British_Airways

Karachi needs at least one direct flight. You spoke about business and trade Karachi is Pakistan’s economic hub don’t ignore this route.
Yay ! Just like old times ... brilliant move.
In reply to @TomDrewUK

A decade later! About time
That’s great news.. might be pushing it but could you please start direct flights to Lahore & Multan too please...
Thanks @TomDrewUK You are really leading from the front to help bilateral ties emerge out of the shadows of #war on #Terror and the unfair western paranoid about the security in # Pakistan. You, @KoblerinPAK and @zlj517 are all being greatly helpful in reviving confidence here
This is excellent news. Well done @British_Airways and @TomDrewUK! Looking forward to travelling between my two favourite countries on the World’s favourite airline.
Great news..the process was initiated in April this year after the inauguration of new bigger Islamabad airport..
British Airways returns to Pakistan after 10 years. Direct flights between London Heathrow and Islamabad from June.
Delighted to hear this news and welcome the initiative by @TomDrewUK.
This is a step in the right direction to further strengthen relations between the #UK and #Pakistan.
Chaa gaye ho Boss @sayedzbukhari well done 👏👏. You have proved your selection in the team. Khan Saab @ImranKhanPTI You really have got an eye to spot talent MashaAllah. Pakistan zindabad, Imran Khan Zindabad 👍👍👍

Great to hear that British Airways will be resuming its flights to Pakistan. Onwards and upwards
.@British_Airways today announces that direct flights from #London to #Islamabad resume in June 2019! With three flights a week on @Boeing's new #Dreamliner, it's a clear vote of confidence in the future of the already deep links between the UK and #Pakistan! 🇬🇧🇵🇰✈️
نااہل نواز اور زرادی ڈاکو کے جاتے ہی دنیا میں پاکستان کا نام عزت سے لیا جانے لگا ہے ۔۔

Wellcome Sir...
پاکستان زندہ باد
British Airways returns to Pakistan. Direct flights from London Heathrow to Islamabad’s new airport start in June. A further boost to links between the UK and Pakistan. @British_Airways for #Pakistan
In reply to @TomDrewUK
Well this is interesting. A long time over due many will feel. Especially those of South Asian heritage and with links to Pakistan. PIA has mounting debts and the CAA has opened up the market as domestic carriers can't offer the public what they need either in Pakistan or UK.
Thomas Drew is a credit to his government - and Pakistan should be happy to have someone with his commitment to deepening Pakistan-UK relations as the UK High Commissioner in Islamabad

In reply to @TomDrewUK
That's great news, but please also consider Karachi as well. Many more people fly out from Karachi not only to the UK but north America and Europe. It would be great to have a one stopover option connecting to the Americas as it's much needed.
In reply to @TomDrewUK
Great News for Pakistan👍👍👍 After a decade British Airways to resume flight operations to Pakistan. Well done @sayedzbukhari #britishairways
In reply to @TomDrewUK

In reply to @TomDrewUK
Thanks for all your efforts. This initiative will go a long way in further enhancing Pak-UK relations in all their aspects. Kudos to you!
This is great news
انصافی خوش ہونے کے بجائے پی آئی اے کا سوچیں جس کے روٹس ختم کرنے اور خراب سروس کی وجہ سے قیمتی زرمبادلہ دوسری ایئرلائنز کے پاس جارہا ہے
شکریہ نواز شریف اسلام آباد کے ائیر پورٹ کی تکمیل کا
British Airways back to Pakistan. Any further proof that Naya Pakistan is going in right direction. @ImranKhanPTI @InsafPK

In reply to @TomDrewUK
Thank you @TomDrewUK & @British_Airways for this great news for the people in #NorthAmerica especially in #Vancouver #Canada & #PacificNorthWest #USA. I had contacted #BA for this #Flight ops recently, thnx. pic.twitter.com/i4tLHmLyJ0
has little to do with the situation in Pak, more to do with British insecurity leading up to Brexit....commercial flights are always a good start to bigger benefits
In reply to @TomDrewUK
When’s Manchester to Islamabad
In reply to @TomDrewUK
Well done.... another feather in ur cap!
I'm sure this will prove highly profitable for BA, highly valuable for people wishing to trade from and into Pakistan and highly useful for families travelling between Pakistan and the UK #ExcellentNewsAllRound
In reply to @TomDrewUK
Looking forward to see more flights from other cities as well, specially from Karachi.
In reply to @TomDrewUK
Please Re Start UK Visa Interview @ British Embassy Islamabad & British Consulate Karachi & Issue UK Visa Here instead of Dropbox for proper assessment of genuine cases More than 50% genuine cases sent in Dropbox of USA Valid Visa Passports gets rejected by UK Abu Dhabi Office
In reply to @TomDrewUK
Great news, all overseas Pakistanis welcome this news.Good luck to both countries, I'm sure other airlines will also join&please keep the fair reasonable so more people can travel. Pakistan will be The -Hub to East- now. I request BA to please cover other airports in Pakistan to.
Oh thank goodness! - here’s hoping the price tags are not as crazy as they are for every British Airways flights
Thanks to Nawaz Sharif for building the New Islamabad Airport, and to restore the peace by his strongly committed policies towards a peaceful & prosperous Pakistan.
In reply to @TomDrewUK
we need manchester to lahore as well please.
Etihad, Emirates, Qatar & Turkish will loose traffic for better connections to Europe and US. Good for Pakistan. Need to improve PIA service. In an open market, people pay for service and convenience.
Thank you Amb. @TomDrewUK for bringing @British_Airways to Pakistan. *Thank you PM @ImranKhanPTI for kicking @ActionAidUK out of Pakistan.
Excellent news! Fly direct with BA and tour Pakistan with #GeoTours!
This news made my day. Alhumdulillh.
What a great news, will boost the positive perception of Pakistan and underpins strong Pakistan and UK ties. So waiting to book my travel with @British_Airways... 😉
