Mode of Arrivals

Pakistan being a long-haul tourist destination, most tourists arrived by
air. As always, the most popular mode of arrivals during 2004, was air
transport because 536.1 thousand or 82.7 percent tourists came by air as
compared to 385.3 thousand or 76.9 percent in 2003, reflecting a significant
increase of 39 percent over the previous year. The foreign tourist arrivals
through land were 111.9 thousand in 2004 as compared to 115.6 thousand
in 2003 showing a decrease of 3.2 percent. The sea traffic as usual
remained nil. (See Table No. 2.7 of Appendix).

The long term trends by mode of arrivals during 1995-2004 are
shown in the Table No. 7.

Indices calculated from Table No. 2.7 of Appendix.


It would be seen from the above table that during the last 10 years,
over-land tourists have grown rapidly as indices jumped up from 39 in 1995
to 90 in 2003 but it declined to 87 in 2004. The overland tourists mostly
originated from neighbouring countries i.e. India, Iran, Afghanistan and
China. The index of air tourists has shown fluctuating trends during the said
period. However, it was the highest in 2004 i.e. 182.
