Getting around Karachi

City buses and minibuses offer transportation throughout Karachi, but the local public transportation system can be difficult to navigate for a visitor – especially if you aren’t planning on staying long in the city. Walking is also a less than desirable option, due to traffic, pollution and long distances between destinations. Many visitors find it best to travel by taxi when it comes to getting around. Hiring a private car with chauffeur is also a convenient option, as are the numerous rickshaws thorough the city.

From airport to the city

All flights to Karachi land at Jinnah International Airport (KHI), the largest airport in Pakistan. It is located about 20 km east of the city. Car rentals and taxis can be arranged upon arrival at the airport. Taxis are available 24 hours a day, and travellers should look for metered taxis when arranging for a ride into Karachi.
