C-130 will Operate for Commercial Flights to Gilgit-Baltistan

Gilgit (Monitoring Desk): The Chief Minister Gilgit-Baltistan stated that a MoU between PIA and Ministry of Defence to hire C-130 plans for the purpose regular flights on commercial basis between Islamabad, Gilgit and Skardu is in process. CM further stated that considering the plight of people of Gilgit-Baltistan due to enormous issue of unavailability of flights I will take the matter with Asif Ali Zardari, president of Pakistan.

I am very hopeful that he will consider this matter very sympathetically and will address the matter on urgent basis. People of Gilgit-Baltistan consider this as a major step to mitigate their troubles of travelling between Islamabad and Gilgit, which by roads take 20 hours and highly insecure as well.  At the same time it will be very helpful to boost tourism.
