Pakistan’s federal cabinet once again delayed the decision on a long-awaited restructuring plan for Pakistan International Airlines. The airline’s Chief Executive Officer Air Marshal retired Arshad Mahmood Malik briefed the federal cabinet, about the finalised restructuring plan. But the cabinet has once again decided not to give a final go-ahead and referred the matter to Economics Coordination Committee to deliberate and decide how to make it happen. It is important to mention the fact that the government is delaying the decision for almost two years.
- Malaysian authorities stop PIA plane at Kuala Lumpur airport because of the leasing payment dispute
- International travellers will need to present a negative Covid-19 test to enter the UK from 15 January
- Saudi airports will be open for all international flights from 31st March 2021
- High Court of Justice in the British Virgin Islands sets new date for Pakistan and PIA case
- PIA flight schedule massively disrupted due to protests in Karachi
Prime Minister Imran Khan has said it many times to that the government wants to make PIA self-sustainable “without seeking financial help from the government”. But this idea is facing chronic delays and the government is not looking serious in sorting out this issue anytime soon.
