Until the advent of the Winter Season in late October, PIA will continue to serve the US Metropolis from each of Karachi and Lahore Int’l using Manchester Int’l as a stopover on the outbound flights as it is not currently authorized to operate non-stop from Pakistan to the United States. For the outbound UK-US sector, PIA has 5th Freedom Rights. Return flights to Pakistan operate non-stop from JFK to Lahore.
