Cheap Flights to Multan Airport

Multan, Pakistan may not be well known outside of South Asia, but this city, in the southern Punjab is one of the most ancient cities in the world, with a past that includes a siege by Alexander the Great and a period that saw it draw countless Sufi mystics, helping it earn the nickname "City of Saints." Today, Multan is an important cultural centre with plenty of reminders of its fascinating and storied past.

Thanks to the recently opened Multan Airport, flights to Multan from abroad have become much easier to come by. This modern and beautiful facility handles a large number of flights from both within Pakistan and further afield, primarily from the Middle East. You can get to this still under appreciated jewel of a city by checking out Skyscanner's Whole Month search feature, which will show you the cheapest days to fly to Multan.

Best Time to Book a Flight to Multan

Multan is known even within Pakistan for its ferociously hot summers. From April to October, temperatures regularly hit the high 30s and low 40s. These months can also produce violent dust storms. While monsoon rains in July and August provide some relief, if you're visiting Multan you will generally want to come between November and March, when daytime temperatures are far more comfortable.
