  • corrupt mafia aka PTI government was the only reason for the ban. naya pakistan in which PIA is banned worldwide?

    • Mr. Mobeen Ali – The PIA was banned due to decades of mismanagement, overstaffing and bad governance. The ban has been a blessing to get the airline back into order and saved Pakistan from another disaster. Let us hope all safety measures are now implemented and the PIA can be on a footing to improve.
