KP Tourism Minister Atif Khan in a recent media talk revealed that the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government is planning to start a helicopter service to make it easier for people to reach popular tourist spots.

Many of KP’s tourist destinations, including Swat’s Kalam Valley, Chitral and Kumrat are difficult to reach due to lack of infrastructure, proper roads and difficult terrain. Most of the roads are narrow and not carpeted and hence dangerous. Helicopter services will cut down the travel time and make it easier for tourists to reach these areas.

The minister did not share details as to what the cost of this service will be or when it will begin.


The Imran Khan led government is working on an extensive plan to boost tourism in the country and make Pakistan a tourist hotspot.
