German airline to resume flights to Pakistan soon (Ambassador)



ISLAMABAD: German Ambassador to Pakistan Bernhard Schlagheck said German airlines, including Lufthansa, are in consultation with the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to launch flights to and from from Pakistan.

He said this while speaking with a state-run news agency.

“Pakistan and Germany have enjoyed friendly and friendly relations since the establishment of their diplomatic relations,” he said, adding that “it is possible to further expand them in various sectors.”

Recently, a high-level business delegation from Germany met with the Secretary of the Investment Board (BOI), Fareena Mazhar here in Islamabad.

The trade commissioner representing Lufthansa was also present at the meeting.

During the meeting, the delegation stated that Lufthansa is very keen to resume flight operations in Pakistan after 13 years.

“Lufthansa has previously suspended operations for commercial reasons but is interested in launching flights for passengers as well as for freight,” said the member of the German delegation.


The secretary, in response to this, offered to hold a meeting with Federal Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar to ensure the plan materializes.

The prospect of this development has already been discussed at a meeting between the Secretary and the German Ambassador, HE Bernhard Stephan Schlagheck, which took place on September 08.

It is relevant to mention here that Lufthansa had relaunched its operations in Pakistan in 2007. It had previously canceled its operations in the country in 1998.
