The northern part of Pakistan has always been a great tourist spot for not only Pakistanis but many foreigners as well. However, due to steep roads and sometimes unpaved paths, many prefer to reach to the area by air rather than going there by road. So keeping that in mind, the Chief Minister of Gilgit-Baltistan Hafiz Hafeezur Rehman has invited private airlines to start their flights/operation in the region with the collaboration of the provincial government to increase tourism. There is a lot of space for new airlines to start their flight operations in G-B, he said.
According to ET, the Chief Minister while talking to Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) President Malik Tahir Javaid, said that the flight operations in G-B by Pakistan International Airlines are not enough, so to boost tourism in the region, private airlines are a necessity.
He further asserted that aside from inviting private airlines in the region to operate, the provincial government has also taken other steps to tap the tourism market and has been very successful in it.
Furthermore, apart from G-B Government trying to increase tourism in the province, the Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation (PTDC) has finally launched sightseeing bus service in twin cities, Islamabad and Rawalpindi.
The primary aim of this new initiative is to promote tourism in both cities and to enhance the existing tourism facilities. Additionally, the special discount package will be offered to students to give them a chance to view the historic sites of both cities.
