Take a journey to the modern capital of Pakistan when you book flights to Islamabad. The buzzing streets, broad highways and mountain backdrops of Islamabad make this an Asian metropolis like no other.

You'll find the cheapest flights to Islamabad by booking in advance, giving you time to prepare for travel to this interesting capital...


Whether it's for an adventure holiday, a cultural exploration or simply a family or spiritual visit (more than one million British Pakistanis live in the UK), travellers snap up cheap flights to Islamabad for departures throughout the year. 

You'll arrive at Islamabad's Benazir Bhutto International Airport (ISB) in the northern Punjab province, after a flight time of around eight hours from the UK. A new airport, designed to withstand the volume of visitors better than the current facility, will be named Gandhara International Airport and is likely to be operational by the middle of 2015.

Of course many people fly into Islamabad airport to make onward connections to destinations such as Peshawar and Hyderabad. But those who stay a little longer in the capital, which at first glance seems little more than an enclave of government buildings and embassies, are rewarded by sights such as the Faisal Mosque, modern museums exploring ancient themes, family attractions, a heap of national monuments and a plethora of parks and green spaces.

For those who simply can't do without the typically intoxicating crush of everyday life that Asia's mega cities are known for, nearby Rawalpindi has everything you need to feel the true rush of this part of the world. The airport is actually closer to Rawalpindi - or just Pindi - than Islamabad, so you could consider a stay in this centuries-old city.
