  • We only heard news like closure of routes for PIA during last government. All of those cancelled routes were transferred to Air Blue (Shahid Khaqan Abbasi)

  • Previous govts have deliberately put pia on back foot while their own airlines prosper. Plans only work when people do their job. InshAllah there seems to be a positive change and hopefully we will see our national carrier once again regaining its lost glory.

  • I think before they think of expanding they need to improve the service, six and half hours delay from Manchester, no notification, This happened to me on Saturday, and the same thing happened last October…

  • We Pakistani people living in new Jersey and new York anxiously waiting when PIA gonna restart operation from JFK. We are giving business to arab country airline instead of own because we don’t have a choice
