PIA Premier service shut down rumours clarified

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan International Airlines denied rumours on Wednesday that the airline was shutting down the recently-launched Premier Service .

Terming such rumours 'basless' PIA Spokesman Daniyal Gilani told Geo News that the national airline's staff was successfully operating flight operations of the Premier Service that was inaugurated on August 14, 2016.

Gilani said due to the success of the new venture, the service will continue.

PIA had acquired a Sri Lankan airlines aircraft to include in the Premier Service last year.

The Spokesman said since an aircraft cannot be wet-leased for more than six months according to the National Aviation Policy , a tender to acquire new planes had been made and new aircraft would be obtained on wet lease on lowest rates.
