And after years long flight to flight operations, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) end its glorious chapter by departing its last flight from the Unites States of America (USA) for Lahore, on Sunday (29/10/17).
PIA flight PK-712 took off with 300 passengers from New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport. The airline officials earlier announced the suspension of its flight operation for the United States primarily because of financial issues.
Originally, two PIA flights would fly for New York via Manchester, however, facing major financial losses worth Rs. 2 billion while flying on this route, the airline had no other option but to suspend all operations.
Nonetheless, PIA, with a fleet of 32 aircrafts, is still operating in 28 international airports.
Administration issues, over-employment and the poor maintenance of the aircrafts are causing problems for the state institutions for the past 12 years.
