PIA suspends all India flights

PIA has officially confirmed that due to poor performance, it shall be suspending its services to Mumbai and Delhi in the following manner:

KHI/BOM - all flights suspended effective 11MAY

KHI/DEL - all flights suspended effective 15MAY

LHE/DEL - all flights suspended effective 07JUN

This means that the fastest way for Karachi passengers to fly to BOM and DEL is on Oman Air via Muscat followed by Emirates via Dubai. Oman Air though offers the shortest flight time (including transit at MCT) in both directions. In 2016 the market demand was as follows:

KHI-BOM 19,000 pax
KHI-DEL 11,000 pax

With Oman Air from KHI, you depart KHI at 2330 and land into BOM at 0600 with a 1 hour transit at MCT. On the return sector, you depart BOM at 1615 and land into KHI at 2245 with a 2 hour transit in MCT only.
