Direct flights between Pak and Central Asia?

Post by Ruby-Black »

Heya

I'm struggling a bit with the extensive and invasive China visa application process and wondering if it is really worth it for me (the plan was to pass from Pakistan into Xinjiang to get to Kyrgyzstan). I'd only be sticking around for a few days to see Kashgar and then heading out again, and I'm aware that it is.. well, pretty weird at the moment, given the current situation.
So as a back up plan, I'm wondering if anybody happens to know of any direct flights in between an Pakistan, and an airport in any of the Central Asian countries?

Thanks

According to the lists available on Wikipedia for the main airports of Pakistan:

Somon Air: Islamabad - Dushanbe
Uzbekistan Airways: Lahore - Tashkent

I haven't checked whether this information is correct...

Thanks for that. I've just tried both and no dice unfortunately!

At one point there seemed to be regular charter flights between Bishkek and (I think) Islamabad, often used by Pakistani students in Bishkek.
Since tickets for these kinds of flights aren't sold via the regular channels you might want to contact some travel agents in Pakistan.
