What is the next international airline to launch flights to Pakistan?

With Virgin Atlantic's new entry and British Airways' increased operations, another airline has the potential to fly to Pakistan

What candidates could they be? Lufthansa, KLM, Air France, SAS, Swiss? , Or in the future we could see United or Air Canada
