Thai Airways had suspended its operations in Islamabad and Lahore because the airspace was closed off a few months ago when war was brewing between India and Pakistan. Now that the situation is resolved, Thai Airways is back and will start operating flights from Pakistan.
Earlier in June, After long gap of 10 years, the first flight of British Airways, BAW-261 landed at Islamabad International Airport from Heathrow, carrying 240 passengers.
