Transportation to Skardu Airport from the City Center

Nestled in the serene landscapes of Gilgit-Baltistan, Skardu Airport serves as an important gateway for adventurers and tourists alike to explore the natural beauty of this region. Due to its strategic location, reaching or departing from Skardu Airport is a hassle-free affair, facilitated by several transportation options tailored to the needs of visitors.


Taxis 
One of the most direct ways to get to or from Skardu Airport is by taxi. Taxis are readily available outside the terminal and provide a hassle-free means of transportation to Skardu city or other nearby attractions. Fares can vary depending on the distance and specific destination, so it's advisable to negotiate and agree on a price before beginning your journey.


Private Car Services
For a more personalized experience, private car services can be arranged. These services offer the comfort and flexibility of exploring Skardu at your own pace, with the added benefit of a knowledgeable driver who can double as a guide to the region. Booking in advance is recommended to ensure availability on arrival.


Rental Cars
Travelers looking for the ultimate freedom to explore may opt for a rental car, which is available at the Skardu airport. This option is best suited for those who are familiar with driving in mountainous terrain and are comfortable navigating the roads of Gilgit-Baltistan on their own. Renting a car allows for spontaneous detours and visits to off-the-beaten-path destinations that are less accessible by public transport or taxi.
Given the natural terrain and scenic routes that characterize the region, driving in Skardu is an adventure in itself. However, it's important to be aware of local driving conditions and weather patterns, especially during the colder months when the roads can be challenging.

Transportation to Islamabad City Center from Airport

In Islamabad, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, within city transportation is highly developed and quite easy. City transportation is usually provided by bus, metrobus and taxi services. Trains are mostly used for trips outside the city. Railways in Islamabad and its surrounding have a very large network.

There are trains a few times a day from the main railway station in the city of Islamabad to the big and modern cities. Buses waiting at Islamabad Airport also have stops near many famous hotels. A large part of the city transportation is carried out by bus, but it is also convenient to travel around by bicycle and phaeton. The fact that bicycle roads are developed in the city is driving many local and foreign tourists in the city and even the locals to take advantage of bicycle transportation. It is very comfortable to go to many places in the city with a small car with two or three wheels called "Riksov". Since these vehicles are small, they take you where you will go quickly without getting caught in traffic.

Riksovs, a different and basically good option for transportation, is often located in Qasim Market and Rawalpindi. Islamabad has a cleaner, more modern and wider transportation network than other cities in Pakistan. Islamabad is divided into eight different zones including the diplomatic zone, the trade zone, the education zone, the industrial zone. In each zone there are different shopping areas and public parks etc. that are suitable for the structure of that zone. While public transport does not offer much choice within the city, the buses that are the main means of transportation of the city meet a large part of this need.

Apart from city buses, Metrobuses also serve in Islamabad, one of the rare cities that provide different methods of transportation. MetroBus is just like a bus, but it is very fast like a subway. These means of transportation, which resemble the metrobuses in Istanbul, have a single route but it is possible to see the stops in many places of the twin cities (Rawalpindi and Islamabad).

There is a small train station and bus station just outside the arrival terminal of Islamabad Airport. It is very practical to meet your transportation needs with city buses and trains departing from here. You can reach to Islamabad city center from the airport by metrobus and buses, as well as by taxi or car rental services.

Bus

Islamabad city buses have many different routes and some pass through Islamabad Airport. Buses that are quite crowded at some times, although slower than metrobuses, are another practical option for transportation from airport to Islamabad city. You can use buses in times when metrobuses are crowded or for a connected ride. Because buses and metrobus lines are connected to each other, it is very easy to reach them by making a few transfers at the desired times.

The 1-C bus line goes to Islamabad Secretariat from Rajalpindi Saddar Terminal via Murre Road. Bus number 3 provides transportation between Raja Bazar and Bari Imam. Bus number 21 travels from Garakhpur to Islamabad Secretariat via Adiala Road.

It's a very practical to go to areas I-9, I-10, and Shifa Hospital by transferring from bus number 21 to bus number 22. Bus 101 goes to Faisal Mosque from Pirwadhai Bus Stand via Faizabad. The 104 line goes to Islamabad Secretariat from Tamal via Chungi.

The bus number 105 goes from the G-11 Markaz to the Aab Para via the Karachi Company. It is very fast and economical to get to the city center from Islamabad Airport with the metrobus. Metrobuses serving since 2015 have basically one route. This route begins from the Secretariat Terminal and ends at the Saddam Termian. The stops are Parade Ground, Shaheed-e-Millat, 7th Avenue, Stock Exchange, PIMS, Katchehry, Ibn-e-Sina, Chaman Road, Kashmir Highway, Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Khayaban-e-Johar, Potohar Road, IJP Road, Faizabad, Shamshabad , Sixth Road, Rehmanabad, Chadni Chowk, Waris Khan Road, Committee Chowk, Liaquat Bagh and Marrir Chowk.

Taxi

Taxis are one of the most preferred options to reach the city center from Islamabad Airport. If you have a chance to bargain, the price they will give you would be much more economical. It would take you about 14 minutes to reach the city from the airport by taxi and it would cost about 28-35 TL as of today.

If you prefer transportation from Islamabad Airport to the city center by taxi, you can make your reservation by calling the following companies which offer reasonable price options: Metro Radio Cab (+92515872236) and Yellow Cab / Taxi Service (+92515405077).

Car Rental

If you make your pre-reservation by calling the car rental companies located in Islamabad Airport or via internet, you are likely to rent your car at much more reasonable prices. You can get to Islamabad city center from the airport by car in about 15-20 minutes. If your holiday lasts less than a week, it is recommended that you consider the option of public transport (metrobus and buses) instead of renting a car.
