The German carrier will start with three weekly flights from Karachi via Lahore to Frankfurt with flight numbers LH 658/659.

“Pakistan, as a growing market with a highly mobile population, offers Lufthansa excellent opportunities. Our passengers will have access to the extensive route network of Lufthansa connecting through the Lufthansa hub Frankfurt to other European destinations as well as to the United States,” said Joachim Steinbach, Lufthansa’s vice-president, sales and services, Southeast Europe, Africa and Middle East/Pakistan.

He added that passengers would benefit from the new Lufthansa flights since the non-stop connection from Pakistan to Germany would reduce travel time by up to three hours, compared to the current connecting flights from the Gulf to Europe.
