Emirates to add sixth Karachi service

EMIRATES is launching a sixth daily service to Karachi, Pakistan from August.
The UAE carrier operates an A330-200 aircraft on the route and the additional daily service will provide a cargo payload of 17 tonnes.
As Pakistan’s largest city, the added flight will help facilitate even better connectivity for cargo, says the carrier.
“Emirates has had a long-standing relationship with the city of Karachi, being the first destination we flew to on our launch day, 25 October 1985.
“Over the years we have steadily increased the frequency we have served the city, leading to today’s announcement that we are adding a sixth daily service”, says Ahmed Khoory, the airline’s senior vice-president, commerical operations for the west Asia and Indian Ocean, Emirates.
“This increase is in response to the demand from passengers and our cargo customers.”
