Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif today inaugurated PIA’s Premier Service at Islamabad Airport.

National carrier is hoping to revive its lost glory through this PIA Premium Service that will come with free limousine service for business class passengers from London’s Heathrow Airport.

Initially six flights per week are introduced from both Islamabad and Lahore to London with premium experience, better meals and extended in-flight entertainment.

In-line with international standards, each passenger will be able to enjoy separate entertainment system, display screen and controller for a range of in-flight entertainment collection.

PIA said that air fares will remain unchanged for now.

Mr. Sharif was explained about the PIA Premier Service and its facilities by CEO PIA. Mr. Ishaq Dar, Finance Minister, and Mr. Parvez Rashid, Information Minister, were also present at the occasion.

PIA has said that its Premier Service will also be introduced for other routes including China.

Not to be mentioned, three A330 aircrafts are acquired through wet lease from Sri Lankan Airline.

PIA is expecting to get more A330 planes by early next year.

    Yes Corruption, Yes lawlessness … That’s nawaz shareef

    • Razil Nazir

      It was way worse in the time of Asif Zardari. Atleast Punjab is progressing as is KPK and Baluchistan Gwadar developing. Sindh is and will remain in the 16th century because of PPP rule.

      • Gulfam

        Not Punjab; only Lahore is progressing. Sometime visit anywhere in South Punjab to see your so-called development.

        • Ahmed

          Faisalabad to Multan motorway is in Lahore

          • TM

            Motorway is only upto Gojra (approx 60 km). Distance between Gojra and Multan is approx 200 km via kamalia. Physically there is no work in progress for the construction of Gojra to Multan patch.

        • zubairw

          Kindly travel to South punjab and you will see yourself. Towns in all parts of punjab way ahead of any other province of pak. Even in sindh projects under sindh gov are in crisis while fedral projects going smoothly. They can be done faster but at least something being done. Khuda kay wastay jiyala na bano Pakistani bano. Bijli improved in all cities. I speak frm 1st hand experience from khi, lhe, and isl. Road i travel frm khi till Abbotabad and even further so not speaking on rumors. Please go and check before denouncing someone

          • ahmed

          Bullet train lahore to karachi is in lahore c pack is in lahore you guys are nothing more then a looser imran khan nay sirf bewakoof bana hai tum logon ko..

          • Ali

            only roads/transport are necessary for development? “road na bnao , soch bnao”. No doubt pakistan ko har chez ki zrurt hai but first set proprieties that are health, education and these…. kindly visit beyond multan in Southern Punjab, Check the basics needs of humanity and then tell me what you see!

            • Hamza Riaz

              Worlds 2nd biggest hospit
              In faislabad danish school system punjab wo tu pahly kiye that aap ko nazzar nhi aye gain.

              • Ali

                Who said Nishter Hospital is 2nd biggest hospital, that was a time, not yet bro. Nishter hospital is in its worst condition ever. Danish Schools is the wrapper of basics schools. I admitted it is operated very well but Thousands of thousands students are still going to conventional schools and every one knows their conditions and teacher capabilities. Starting wrapper projects is just waste of money, try to fix old ones. Be Smart.

          • Umz

            جناب والا۔ کیا عوام موٹروے کو روٹی بنا کر منہ میں ڈال سکتے ہیں ؟
            ملک کی عوام موٹروے پر نہیں گلیوں، دیھاتوں اور قصبوں میں رہتی ہے۔
            کیا آپکے پاس سڑکیں گنوانے کے علاوہ ترقی بتانے کے لۓ کچھ ہے؟

          • Umz

            And also, I am sure you can’t even explain what “c pack” is.
            Its CPEC, not “c pack”.

          • Paki

            yes ur totally right Punjabistan Zendabad .

      • Ishtiaq

        Tou Sindh Baray Mian ki jurisdiction main nahi aata kia? Pooray mulk ka PM hai woh. Saray mulk ka paisa sirf gawal mandi pe kharch karny ka haq kis ne dia? Karachi to Lahore Motorway banwani chahiye thi pehley, Karachi is a seaport per Mian ne Lahore Islamabad banwa li sirf apni tafreeh k liye. 2013 k elections k baad first time when chotay Mian visited Karachi, he announced that we’ll build a metro in Karachi as Karachi is the largest city of the country. But till to date nothing. They would have probably forgot it. But go check your self on Internet you’ll find his video where he’s claiming so. Baday Mian is PM of whole country not just Gawal Mandi.

        • BADAR

          Pure Karachi me Metro banane per bohat kharcha ata laiken.phir bhi.kuch hissay me banana shuru krdi hai wafaq ne

    • AbdulB1

      harold pe shopping hai to phir dosri chezo ki kia zarorat?

    • Ali Salman

      F… Off please

    • let the blame game begins……

    • Hamza Riaz

      I woke today man you were sleeping last 15 years i know. When things are getting better i woke up right..


      • Hamza Riaz

        You were sleeping from last 15 years man.
        When musharaf were there and zardari now u wokeup when pakistan is getting better day by day..
        Stop critising them..be positive pakistan is better now ALHUMDULILLA

    • Jaybee ever

      Electricity: Tarbela 4th extension, LNG agreement with Qatar followed by 3 LNG fired power plants in pipeline and Dasu nearing financial close.
      Gas: LNG agreement with Qatar + regassification unit by Engro + a govt unit in progress
      Health Care: Punjab health care unit has people from MIT, Cambridge finally doing something real
      Education: Danish school system but still more needed

      Please research before posting. (I am not a PML N voter or supporter)

  • AbdulB1

    lankans had so many new planes and not that much air traffic they surely are helping Pakistanis in the time of need.

    • Jaybee ever

      This is a commercial transaction, not an “hour of need” thing. As it should be.

      • AbdulB1

        Who said it’s not a commercial transaction? The fact is that we got new planes on lease is quite important thing keeping in mind what mess these politicians have created for this country.

  • Ahsan

    This is indeed great but I value punctuality, reliability and consistency more than these MM screens and ‘shashkay’.
    My cousins recently had to wait for 2+ DAYS @ Canada airport to get their PIA flight which was not operational due to administrative issues. Do you think that any of us will now be fascinated by these premiere services after having a turbulent experience of waiting 2+ days at airport?

    • Jaybee ever

      My Etihad flight was 65 hours late. Should i stop travelling Etihad?

  • Fahad J

    In greater words Lag gaye LLL

  • Nawaz Sharif looks very interested in PIA CEO’s presentation. Then again, he is “very interested” in most issues concerning Pakistan.

  • PIA

    Please note in your mind that here Premium service means premium for Business Class or Executive class not ecnomoy class. Seats in economy and outlay of economy class is same as before. So, they have launched elite service for elites!

    • Jaybee ever

      Isnt that the same case with Emirates A380 planes?

  • Muhammad Zaman

    A ten year old aircraft like Air Bus/Boeing which has flown 50,000 hours
    are available at one fifth of the price. Now with wet lease, Pakistan
    will be paying to Sri Lankan citizen whereas 14000 SURPLUS Pakistani
    employees of PIA will get pay and allowances without doing any work.In
    addition we will be paying 88000 US dollars per day to Sri Lanka. It was
    better to purchase 10 year old 5 air crafts and pay 88000 dollars per
    day and in just 2 years PIA would have paid the price and owned these
    air buses/ Boeing. Mr. Prime Minister, who are your advisors? Must be
    dual nationals who are looking after the interests of their new masters.Please put the 14000 PIA employees on job by adding 10 year old air crafts.

    • Jaybee ever

      This was a commercial decision. 14000 employees of PIA need to be laid off or repositioned. No airline in the world has this much excess baggage of employees. Time to cut the fat. Fully support govt’s move (i am not a PML N voter or supporter)

  • PakistaniGuy

    what an interesting country where a PM is inaugurating rented airplane service. wow Pakistan on the road to progress…

    • Jaybee ever

      Its a norm world over. Emirates began renting planes from PIA. Please research before posting.

      • PakistaniGuy

        did you say began and that too renting from PIA now PIA is renting from others, wow what an amazing research you did? do you see any PM inaugurating rented plane service?
