In accordance with the vision of the Prime Minister Imran Khan, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) and Civil Aviation Authority are heading towards its development phase.
The productive policies of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) led government are now bearing fruit for the betterment of the national institutions.
CAA played a vital role in promoting tourism, in keeping with Prime Minister Khan’s vision, as the institution created 3,200 positions to end unemployment. In addition, CAA sources said the foundation stone of a new airport was laid in Gwadar this year.
Following the success of the Prime Minister’s foreign policy, British Airways flights were resumed this year as the process of installing modern equipment at various airports across the country in parallel with its modification in line with international standards continued.
The concerned authorities have also continued construction of new runways at the airports, whereas, the PIA revenue increased after the resumption of major routes including Lahore, Islamabad, United Kingdom (UK) and Europe.
The government is implementing a business plan for taking out the national flag-carrier from the major financial losses to transform it into a profitable institution. Sources said that PIA received 30 per cent revenue during the last six months.
The services of Airports Security Force (ASF) also played an important role in eliminating money laundering, gold and narcotics smuggling during its actions carried out on different airports. The ASF staff members have also foiled bids to smuggle weapons besides arresting the accused persons.
