PIA may ‘see off’ its Premier Service after financial losses
ISLAMABAD: The administration of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) is considering to stop its operations of the Premier Service due to financial losses just four months after its launch, ARY News reported on Tuesday.
PIA had launched its Islamabad to London “Premier Service” on 14th August, 2016. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had inaugurated the national airliner’s “Premier Service” himself.
However, the national carrier had reportedly faced a financial loss of Rs. 700 million within four months of its inauguration.
PIA was using expensive Airbus jets for its “Premier Service”. The national airliner had bought new aircraft for the flights. The features of the new service included new livery and elegant business class.
With new aircraft, more professional crew and improved service standards, PIA aimed at providing an altogether different experience to passengers.
Under the new services, the passengers could travel in a limousine car upto 25 kilometres in London.
