With this opportunity, the airline is looking to earn additional revenues at the times of crisis.

It should be noted that the national flag carrier is incurring heavy losses due to the flight bans from the US, UK, and Europe. Earlier this month, the national airline informed the National Assembly that it occurred losses of Rs. 280 million in the past two months due to the flight ban.


  • PIA top management and CAA’s top management is from PAF. So one colleague is giving certificate to another colleague. The real achievement will be when European or American authorities will give this certification to PIA.
