Inflight – Pakistan International Airlines

Pakistan International Airlines commonly known as PIA or Pakistan International is the national flag carrier of Pakistan. It operates scheduled services to 23 domestic destinations and 30 international destinations in 27 countries across Asia, Europe and North America.

Pakistan International Airlines can trace its origins to the days when Pakistan had not yet gained independence from the British Raj. In 1946, the country’s founder Muhammed Ali Jinnah realized the need for a flag carrier for the prospective country and requested financial help from a wealthy businessman Mirza Ahmad Ispahani and Adamjee Haji Dawood for this purpose.

On 7 June 1954, Orient Airways started its operations by offering flight services between East and West Pakistan, with service from Karachi to Dhaka.

Pakistan International Airlines Corporation (PIAC) is majority owned by the Government of Pakistan (87%) while the remainder (13%) by private shareholders. The airline is under the administration of Ministry of Defence the chairman of which is Muhammad Mian Nawaz Sharif .

  1. PIA is a really interesting airline. Yet, the age of the fleet is a little problematic. Especially the Airbus A310 und the Boeing 747-300 airplanes are very old which makes flying with PIA a little less than flying with other airlines. Yet, I’d definitely try flying PIA in the future 🙂
