In this regard, Saidu Sharif Airport in Swat, which was scaled down due to security reasons in 2004, would be made operational next month after the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) upgrades it. There will be two flights to Saidu Sharif from Islamabad on a weekly basis to facilitate tourists.

The national carrier will also operate flights from Lahore to Skardu and Gilgit with an aim to promote tourism.
