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.
- British Airways resuming its Islamabad-London flights from 2nd August
- Allama Iqbal International Airport Lahore’s main runway is opened for flight operations after 2 years
- Another Indian plane this time IndiGo ends up landing in Karachi
- PIA receives its 2nd Airbus A320 on dry lease
- Airblue starts Islamabad to Skardu flights and we got a seat on its inaugural flight
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.
