This is the most random thing Ive ever done. But Im bored and have nothing better to do.

Ive brought up in the past how Pakistan had its glory days with the 'great airlines of Europe'.. So I got even more bored and decided to find as much information as I can about the services that were offered into Pakistan from European carriers in the past.

Heres what I got:

Air France (NO CLUE AT ALL but I know they flew there)
_

Alitalia (NO CLUE AT ALL but I know they flew there)
_

British (Still flies to ISB but what about KHI flight info?)
_

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines

(Not Sure) KL450 which went: AMS-AUH-KHI (?)
_

Lufthansa German Airlines

LH641 which went FRA-ATH-KHI-HKG-TYO

LH640 which went HAM-DUS-FRA-FCO-CAI-KHI-CCU-BKK

Im sure there was more for LH but thats all I got.
_

Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) (NO CLUE AT ALL but I know they flew there)
_

Swiss Air (SR) (NO CLUE AT ALL but I know they flew there)
_

SWISS Intl. Air Lines Ltd.

LX242 which went ZRH-DXB-KHI (now it terminates at DXB)

LX246 which went ZRH-KHI non-stop (terminated)
_

As you can see I am missing a lot. Im leaving it to you guys to put the puzzle together.

Enjoy  Smile

Air France served CDG-AUH-KHI uptil termination in the 90's.The last plane used was A310 but before it was serviced by B747.I did see AF cargo B747F's at KHI till quite recently but im not sure if that service is still on.

BA serves ISB as you said but it served KHI till 1991 if memory serves me right.The last plane used was B767 but right before that it was on the L1011 Tristar and routing was LHR-KWI-KHI.

Lufthansa served KHI uptil late 90's and had upto 8 weekly services to KHI from FRA.They were either routed through DXB,BAH or AUH.A couple of flights continued to KTM but rest were terminators.Planes used were A310 then A300-600.LH cargo served KHI with MD11F's but that may also have stopped.

KLM axed KHI after LH.I think frequency was 4 X weekly with B747-300 then MD-11.Routing was AMS-DXB-KHI and also AMS-AUH-KHI.

SR then LX was the last major European airline that axed KHI.The move came in October 2004 much to my surprise as i flew it for years quite frequently and it did very well in terms of loads.Routing was ZRH-DXB-KHI on the A330-200.The route was also served in the past by A310 via AUH.

Aeroflot (if you consider that European) was at one time the biggest foreign carrier in KHI and had a mini hub here.I
remember as a child in the very early 90's seeing 4 or more SU planes at KHI at a given time.They axed KHI also within this decade.

Tarom of Romania also served KHI via DXB for a few years up until the mid 90's.They used the A310.

Swefly of Sweden flew into LHE from Stockholm (not ARN) till it went bust last year.Flight was nonstop on a B767-200

SAS, Alitalia and perhaps a few others did serve KHI but that was much before the 90's even.KHI was quite a significant city for aviation till the 90's,infact if you look at the route maps of most major airlines of the world at that time,chances are KHI was probably served.Sadly not a single European airline now serves KHI which is essentially reduced to basically just a regional airport.Atleast 3/4 of all international flights to/from KHI are either:
DXB
AUH
BAH
MCT
JED
RUH
DMM
DOH

By the way Cargolux flies into KHI 1x week but thats obviously just cargo.

Wow.. I had heard that SU served Pakistan, but 4 or more planes at once! Do you have any idea if they continued onwards from KHI to somewhere in the far east?


Thanks.

LH never served KHI via AUH they were via MCT not BAH either, LH just flew recently into BAH never in the 90's

In 1998 I flew LH from Karachi to Abu Dhabi to Frankfurt (airbus) then United to Chicago. Memorable journey. The fish served was not very good though  Smile

Im sorry but please check your facts before contradicting someone elses point.

I have myself flown on LH from KHI to FRA via BAH in 1995 and i have also flown SR on KHI-AUH-ZRH in 1996.Both flights were on a A310.

That takes care of the KHI-AUH-FRA route.
