The rundown on flights to Islamabad

Pakistan’s modern capital, Islamabad, is often overlooked in favour of larger cities like Lahore and Karachi; however, in recent times, this tranquil city has been carving out a niche for itself as a unique tourist destination, helped by its cosmopolitan image and its scenic location at the foothills of the magnificent Margalla Hills. Look below as your flight begins its descent into Benazir Bhutto International Airport and you might even catch a glimpse of one of its most prized attractions, the majestic Faisal Mosque. This is a city that’s on the up – and the increasing availability of flights to Islamabad from Britain means that there’s never been a better time to visit.

Booking cheap flights to Islamabad

Monsoon season hits Islamabad in late summer, and prices tend to climb in winter, making spring one of the best times to visit the city. Fares are usually a little cheaper, the weather is good and you’ll get the chance to see the Rose and Jasmine Garden in full bloom and at its most fragrant. If you’re flying in February, don’t miss the annual Basant celebration, a kite-flying festival heralding the beginning of spring. Those looking to bag cheap tickets to Islamabad during the peak travel season from October to January should keep their dates flexible and book at least two months in advance.

Where can I fly to Islamabad from?

A number of airlines provide one-stop flights from UK airports to the Pakistani capital, with varying prices and flight times. Popular airlines that offer indirect flights from Heathrow include Emirates via Dubai, Turkish Airlines via Istanbul and Qatar Airways via Doha. Turkish Airlines also operate a one-stop route from Gatwick. British Airways fly via Doha from Birmingham, while Emirates also jet off from Glasgow and Newcastle, again with a pit stop in Dubai.

Getting from Islamabad airport to the city centre

The most convenient way to get from Islamabad’s Benazir Bhutto International Airport to the city centre is by taxi. The airport is located around 13 miles south of the city and the journey time to the centre takes approximately 25 minutes, depending on traffic. Taxi fares start at 400 rupees; it’s recommended to agree on a final price with the driver before setting off. Many Islamabad hotels offer a complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport, so it’s worth checking this when you make your reservation.

Where cultures collide in Islamabad

Islamabad’s most striking feature is its scenery; this city distinguishes itself from others in Pakistan by virtue of its lush, green surroundings. The quaint and charming village of Saidpur, nestled in the Margalla Hills just a short drive from the city, has become a top tourist attraction in recent years. As well as mud houses and well-preserved old buildings and temples, you’ll find a number of modern eateries, shops and an art gallery. Another interesting feature is the sight of a mandir, a church and a gurdwara all side by side – depicting an era when different religious cultures co-existed here in harmony.
