Mushtaq Travel struggles to keep up with demand from British Pakistanis booking Flights to Pakistan from the UK

Posted August 9, 2014 by
Leading Pakistani travel agency offering cheap flight tickets for Pakistan and worldwide is struggling to keep pace with demand due to rising passenger numbers from the UK.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Press Release) August 9, 2014


Demand for cheap flights into Pakistan in recent years has sky rocketed from the UK due to spike in immigrants from Pakistan now living and residing permanently in the United Kingdom. The influx of migrants is mainly from the Kashmir region of Pakistan also known as little England. The people of Kashmir and other parts of Pakistan started immigrating to the UK in the 1950’s on a large scale.

Due to historical relations between the two countries and with Pakistan being under the rule of the British Raj in the mid nineteenth century many Pakistani’s were serving under the British Military and the British Empire, However it was following the Second World War, the break-up of the British Empire and the independence of Pakistan, that Pakistani immigration to the United Kingdom increased, especially during the mid 1950s and 1960s. This was made easier by the fact that Pakistan was a member of the Commonwealth. Pakistani immigrants helped to resolve labour shortages in the British steel and textile industries. Doctors from Pakistan were recruited by the National Health Service in the 1960s.

There are around 1.2 Million Pakistanis living in the UK, hence the increase in demands for flights between the UK and Pakistan. British Pakistanis are becoming increasingly professional and are now joining the UK Middle Classes. The success of British Pakistanis living in the UK has created a gateway for many airlines who have started operating more scheduled flight frequencies from UK airports such as London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Birmingham International, Manchester International Airport, Newcastle and even flights from Scotland’s two major airports Edinburgh and Glasgow. The frequency of flights departing from these UK airports to Islamabad, Lahore, Karachi, Peshawar and now Emirates Operating to Sialkot has increased to about 10 fold as compared with the early to Mid 90’s.

Although there are currently half a dozen if not more airlines operating routes between Pakistan and The UK including Emirates, Etihad, Qatar, Turkish, Gulf, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and PIA, the increase in demand has sky rocketed ticket prices to well over £1000.00 for adult return tickets during the peak seasons of Summer, Easter and New Year, despite several flight departures on a daily basis from all UK airports does not seem to be able to cater for today’s rising demands for cheap flights, for most Pakistanis premium prices have not deterred them from booking thus allowing for airlines to compete for premium fares during the peak times.
