Our new destination is Karachi. That city has a population of 18,8 million people! It is ranked as the largest city and commercial capital of Pakistan and the capital of the province of Sindh (as of 2019). Imagine one city with a population bigger than the entire Netherlands! Karachi became the capital of Pakistan after independence in 1947. The city lost its status as the capital with the construction of Islamabad on 14 August 1967, exactly 20 years after the country’s independence. Karachi is also known locally as the City of Lights.
Jinnah International Airport (IATA: KHI, ICAO: OPKC) is Pakistan’s busiest international and domestic airport and handled 6,697,073 passengers in 2017-2018. Located in Karachi, it is named after Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan. (Wikipedia)
