Petroleum Minister Ghulam Sever Khan has hinted that Air France is thinking to resume operation in Pakistan after 11 years of gap.
The statement seems a continuation of PTI government’s effort that earlier convinced British Airways to resume its flight operations in Pakistan after ten years. British Airline is scheduled to start operations by June this year from London’s Heathrow airport to Islamabad’s new airport.
Although, there were no further details shared by the minister, but it is highly likely that announcement from British Airways has been taken as a positive signal by the world’s other leading airlines.
Pakistan has already eased down visa regime under which nationals of more than 50 countries will get Pakistani visa on arrival.
PTI government believes tourism is the industry Pakistan must flourish that can create a revenue stream of billions of dollars.
