    Pakistan is served by Air China who fly to Karachi and Islamabad from Beijing with A330-200 as well as China Southern who serve Lahore from Urumqi and Islamabad from Urumqi, Guangzhou and Kunming with 737-800, while PIA operates to Beijing from Islamabad and onwards to Tokyo with 777-200ER..

    YTO Cargo Airlines operate to Islamabad from Urumqi, Karachi from Kunming and Kashgari and Lahore from Lanzhou with 757-200F.
