RAWALPINDI: After operating flights from Islamabad, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) also resumed operations from Lahore to Malaysia on Sunday.

At a ceremony, a cake was cut at the Lahore airport and flowers were presented to the passengers.

He said PIA was already operating two weekly flights from Islamabad to Kuala Lumpur.

The national airline is increasing the number of its flights on the special instructions of the Minister for Aviation Khawaja Saad Rafique to facilitate more people and promote tourism.

Flights from Lahore to Gilgit and Skardu are also being operated to provide direct and comfortable travel facilities to people through their national airline.
