The Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation (PTDC) is planning to develop a helipad at Rawal Lake viewpoint for launching an air safari in Islamabad.
Talking to APP, PTDC Managing Director Abdul Ghafoor Khan expressed hope that soon Pakistan would be among top tourist destinations of the world.
He revealed that PTDC was considering participating in international tourism and travel exhibitions in collaboration with provincial tourism organisations, airlines, hoteliers and tour operators. This will not only create awareness of Pakistan, but will also increase influx of tourists into the country.
“To increase the number of rooms in existing PTDC motels, we have contacted manufacturers of prefabricated structures and soon new rooms will be added to Naran, Ayubia and other prominent motels,” said Khan.
The tourism industry business has witnessed a 40% increase as the flow of tourists has been increasing during the current season. “Tourism business is flourishing”
