Opposite to the general belief, the Pakistan International Airline (PIA) is gradually improving its services and its commitment to serve the masses is quite extraordinary.
Owing to the lack of medical equipment and world-class hospitals in Skardu, the national flag carrier operated two special flights to airlift 6 patients to Islamabad for treatment. Mind you, this is amidst record-breaking snow and widespread road blockages with temperatures touching -22°C.
While the challenging conditions didn’t permit PIA to conduct its regular flights between 11th and 17th January, the flag carrier operated PK451/452 flights on the 18th and 19th to carry all the stuck passengers from Skardu to Islamabad.
Not just this, two deceased people received from Kuwait were also transported from the capital to Skardu.
Taking to Twitter, PIA’s official handle appreciated the efforts of its staff and Civil Aviation Authority, saying:
This was only possible due to the tireless efforts of our hardworking staff, who worked late hours and organized all the required equipment to manage operations in the freezing temperature.
