Pakistan Airways registered as PIA subsidiary

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Airways, a new organization, has been registered as subsidiary of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA).

The decision has been taken in line to improve the service standards of PIA.

In a statement, PIA Spokesman Danyal Gillani said the initiative will help improve the service standard and image of the national airlines.

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) employees on Feb 9 ended their nine-day long strike spurred by plans to privatise the national carrier, saying their representatives would immediately hold talks with the government.

Pakistan’s airports had been enmeshed in chaos nationwide since the strike kicked off that grounded international and domestic flights and left thousands of passengers stranded.

During the protest, two employees were killed and several others wounded at Karachi’s international airport when clashes broke out between security forces and staff.

In December, Islamabad announced it would complete the partial sale of the carrier by July, following years of crushing losses and mismanagement that have battered the airline’s reputation.

PIA, one of the world’s leading airlines until the 1970s, now suffers from frequent cancellations and delays and has been involved in numerous controversies over the years.
