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.
- Pakistani airline Rayyan Air to charter a PIA Boeing 777
- PIA resumes charter flights between the UK and Pakistan
- Pakistan Civil Aviation imposed fine of Rs 100,000 on Qatar Airways
- British Airways’ first flight touched down in Lahore this morning
- British Airways replaces CEO Alex Cruz with immediate effect
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.
