Jinnah International Airport (airport code KHI) in Karachi is Pakistan’s largest airport both in terms of international and domestic flights.

Allama Iqbal International Airport (airport code LHE) is in Lahore, about 15 km from the city center. Pakistan International Airlines uses Lahore’s airport as a secondary hub after Karachi. Allama Iqbal International’s website does not list the airlines which serve it, but you can get an idea of which airlines fly there on this page. You can track both arrivals and departures here. You will find information about the airport’s shopping here, and the dining here. There are taxi services and rental car agencies at Lahore’s airport, and you can read more about both here. There is also a railway reservation office in the airport.

Islamabad International Airport (airport code ISB) is in Rawalpindi outside the capital of Islamabad – it is often used by government officials, and is therefore shut down temporarily when they are coming and going. This can make travel through the Islamabad airport a bit problematic at times. A new airport for the capital is being planned in a new location near Fateh Jang, five kilometers from Islamabad. You are probably better off avoiding flying into a different Pakistan airport if you can.
