  1. Good initiative. PIA should also try to liaise with hotels to try to provide discounted package to people visiting Skardu.

  2. I am a Muslims. I am Pakistan country but I like my favourite city sheikhupura. I was Born in city sheikhupura. My education complaint in city sheikhupura.

  3. The weather can change abruptly in Skardu in that case will it be landing in Islamabad airport or fly back to Karachi? Because Gilgit airport is not suitable for A320 landing.

  4. Masha Allah a great step forward! Skardu, Baltistan, Gilgit has never been occupied by Pakistan as it belongs to Pakistan. Sadly previous governments who were enenies of Pakistan never gave any priority to these region but NOW WE DO! INSHA ALLAH now we will take parts of India as well with China!

    Brother from Shekhupura, I got your message thst you want an Airport in Shekhupura! Right? I will do a good word for you!
