Boeing, Pakistan International Airlines Finalize Order for Five 777-300ERs

EVERETT, Wash., Feb. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and Pakistan International Airlines today announced a firm order for five 777-300ER (extended range) airplanes. Valued at nearly $1.5 billion at list prices, the order also includes purchase rights to Pakistan International Airlines for five additional 777-300ERs.
Based in Karachi, Pakistan International Airlines has been renewing its long-haul fleet to accommodate increased demand for air travel as well as to introduce new routes.
"With passenger traffic in our region accelerating, the new 777-300ER airplanes will continue to deliver the highest standards of technology and passenger comfort to our customers," said Capt. Nadeem Yousufzai, Managing Director of Pakistan International Airlines. "The spacious 777-300ER has been an integral part of our long-range fleet renewal program and its excellent operating economics, long range capability and reliability will allow us to expand into new long-haul markets."
In 2002, Pakistan's flag carrier became the world's first airline to purchase all three passenger models of the 777 Family and in that year was also the launch customer for the 777-200LR (longer range) airplane.
"We are proud that Pakistan International Airlines is a special Boeing customer that continues to invest and trust in the industry-leading capabilities of the 777 family of airplanes," said Marty Bentrott, vice president of Sales for the Middle East, Russia and Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "Boeing values the excellent partnership that was established over 10 years ago and one which we hope to continue well into the future as the airline progresses with its expansion plans."
2011 was the best-selling year for the 777 program with a net order book of 200 surpassing the previous record of 154 orders set in 2005. The 777-300ER brings new twin-engine efficiency to the airline's long-haul fleet. The airplane is powered by General Electric GE90-115BLs, the world's largest and most powerful commercial jet engines. The airplane also features the Boeing Signature Interior that offers wider seats, wider aisles, more headroom and more seating flexibility.

ECC okays lease of five aircraft for PIA

ISLAMABAD - The Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) of the cabinet has approved the lease of five A-320 aircraft to be inducted in Pakistan International Airlines fleet, besides extending validity of existing guarantees for the PIA by government of Pakistan for term loans of Rs.33.5 billion until 30th June, 2014.
The ECC, which met with Federal Finance Minister Senator Mohammad Ishaq in chair here on Tuesday, considered the acquisition of 10 aircraft to be inducted in Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) fleet. However, the top economic decision-making body of the country approved to lease five A-320 aircraft from the 10 A319/320 aircraft short-listed on merit keeping in view of their combined score tabulated on their financial and technical parameters. The committee rejected the remaining five aircraft because of their low combined score.
The ECC approved the dry lease of five A-320 aircraft with the direction that the lease period of the present aircraft hired on wet lease might be extended so that a pool of at least 10 aircraft could be maintained for convenience of general public and passengers. The ECC also authorised PIA to initiate bidding for tender of additional five aircraft, which might be inducted by June 15, 2014.
It is worth-mentioning here that board of directors of the PIA in the last week of November had given the approval to acquire 10 aircraft to be inducted in PIA fleet. However, the ECC approved to lease five A-320 aircraft. These planes are fuel-efficient aircraft equipped with latest technology used by most of the airlines and are famous for their seating capacity and fuel economies.
Finance Minister Ishaq Dar observed during the meeting that finalisation of this lease by PIA would not only rehabilitate its international credibility but also improve its image.
Secretary Aviation Muhammad Ali Gardezi informed the ECC that release of Rs.12.7 billion after a decision taken by cabinet committee on July 12, PIA was able to add six additional aircraft, which raised the number of operational aircraft from 20 to 26. This, he said, had increased schedule integrity with no complaints of delay during Haj operations. The operation was smooth after many years. The secretary aviation also informed ECC that the loss of PIA had reduced from Rs.3.3 billion to Rs.1.5 billion last month.
The PIA management stated that improvement in performance, service and financial health of PIA was a result of the regular financial support and continued oversight by the present government.
The ECC approved grant of guarantees to Exim Bank of USA and Islamic Corporation of Insurance and Export Credit (ICIEC) to extend financial assistance for servicing and repair of nine Boeing 777 aircraft which are the main stay of PIAC fleet subject to approval of financing terms by the Finance Division. The Finance Minister observed that generally Exim Bank did not provide loans for repairs and maintenance which reflected the confidence of the international institutions in the economic policies of the present government.
The ECC also approved extension of validity of existing guarantees for PIA by the government of Pakistan for term loans of Rs.33.50 billion until 30th June 2014. The ECC directed that these term loans should be converted into new term finance certificates (TFC) at the earliest in order to retire the said guarantees.
The ECC expressed concern over reports in the media regarding increase in the prices of essential commodities. The committee directed the provincial governments to further strengthen monitoring of prices and check hoarding and profiteering. The ECC expressed the hope that the provinces would share information and follow best practices to provide relief to the common man in maintaining fair prices of essential commodities.
Work on the revival of executive magistracy might be expedited by the committee already constituted for the purpose to ensure more effective check on profiteers and hoarders, observed the ECC.
The meeting was attended by Minister of Food and National Security Sikandar Bosan, Minister for Petroleum and Natural Resources Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Pervez Rashid, Minister for Science and Technology Zahid Hamid, Minister of State for Information Technology Anusha Rehman, Chairman Board of Investment Zubair Umar and senior officials of the ministries of finance, water and power, planning and development, commerce, communications and industries.

Foreign and domestic private airlines have slowly eaten into PIA’s passenger traffic.

KARACHI:*Passengers of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will soon be able to use phone, check emails and watch latest movies on board as the air carrier will upgrade its in-flight entertainment system on long-haul flights.
Initially, the facilities – Wi-fi and phone service being introduced for the first time by a Pakistani carrier – will be offered on PIA’s nine Boeing 777s, which have been deployed on longer routes to Europe, US and Canada, said Managing Director Junaid Yunus.
“We are making every effort to improve the product,” he told*The Express Tribune. “Seats and carpets in the planes are being replaced with new ones and special emphasis will be placed on cleanliness.”
Some of the specialised firms providing satellite communication services have already expressed their interest in working with PIA. But the national flag carrier will shortly issue a tender to meet the regulatory requirement.

Yunus said the airline on its own cannot manage the entertainment system effectively. “For example, the Wi-fi system is very expensive to replace or upgrade.”
PIA’s management has finally realised that it cannot woo passengers without offering them better service compared with other carriers, especially on long-haul flights.
The desire to upgrade in-flight entertainment service follows Yunus’ insistence that long-range B-777s will be used only for international flights to make the trips financially viable.
“The 15-hour flight to Toronto is tiring and passengers need to relax,” he said. “We are just trying to make sure that their journey is safe as well as comfortable.”
Foreign and domestic private airlines have slowly eaten into PIA’s passenger traffic. PIA’s share in international passenger traffic from Pakistan came down to 35% in 2012-13 from 43% in 2007-08.
While Pakistan has air services agreements with 45 countries, PIA flies to just a handful of them because of shortage of aircraft.
Still, it is widely believed in the industry that PIA benefits from one of the world’s most loyal brand following. “I am convinced that our point-to-point service will help us take our share back from other carriers,” Yunus said, referring to direct international flights without any stopovers.
PIA recently inducted four B-737s on wet lease to make sure it can spare bigger 777s for international destinations. The airline has also received government’s nod to induct narrow-body aircraft on dry lease next year.
According to Startrax, the leading air travel rating service provider, PIA is a three-star airline, placing it along with Air India, Kuwait Airways, Saudi Arabian Airlines and Southwest. The customer reviews offer some insight into the passenger experience.
“The meal was fantastic! Inflight entertainment screens were about to be switched on when all the passengers realised only 10 out of 200 screens were working! We had no entertainment for seven hours. Always bring an Ipad, Ipod or entertainment device with you,” wrote Huzayfah Alam, who travelled from London Heathrow to Islamabad on PIA’s B-777-200ER in July.
In almost every other review, passengers have complained about non-existent in-flight entertainment.

IMF sets December 2014 deadline for PIA's privatization
PIA - Pakistan International Airlines (PK, Karachi Int'l) could be privatized by December 2014 if the airline's parent, the Pakistani Government, agrees to the International Monetary Fund's (IMF) recommendation to appoint a financial adviser by March 2014. The Pakistan News says this was part of a condition accepted by Pakistan under the USD6.67billion Extended Fund Facility (EFF). Once appointed, the financial advisor would oversee the sale of a 26% stake in PIA by December 2014 though a June date had previously been set. Other terms of the agreement stipulate that both the Pakistani Defense Ministry and Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) be excluded from the process citing vested interests. PIA has been a persistent millstone around Islamabad's neck with losses worth PKR119.84billion (USD1.106billion) racked up over the last ten years.

Privatisation approved: 26% PIA shares set for take-off
ISLAMABAD: The Privatisation Commission Board on Wednesday approved the appointment of a financial advisor who would oversee sale of 26% shares of Pakistan International Airlines to a strategic investor without transferring its liabilities.
The decision marks the beginning of the privatisation process of PIA and a total of 32 state-owned entities.
Following approval from the Board, the matter will now go to the Cabinet Committee on Privatisation.
The CCOP meeting is often considered a mere formality as all the issues are mainly decided in the PC Board.
Liabilities not to be transferred
An official of the commission said the Board had decided to privatise 26% shares on the same model which was adopted for Pakistan Telecommunication Limited.
Under this model, the government will not transfer the airline’s liabilities to the buyer.
Secretary Finance Dr Waqar Masood said that by last week, the accumulative losses of PIA had increased to Rs180 billion.
A brief statement from the commission said the board had green-lighted the process of selection of a financial advisor for the exercise. The advisor will be determining the base price for the shares.
The statement added that the Board resolved to protect employee interests in the process.
Privatisation for HEC and NPCC approved
Headed by its chairman Mohammad Zubair Umar, the Board also approved the strategic sale of Heavy Electric Complex (HEC) and National Power Construction Company (NPCC).
The Board will meet again on Thursday to consider the cases of Oil and Gas Development Company and to off-load government’s shares in few commercial banks.
The Board thumbed up the strategic sale of a minimum 88% government shares in NPCC and the divestment of a minimum 96% government shares in HEC together with management control. These two entities were at the last stage of privatisation during the regime of Pakistan Peoples Party, but the previous government did not complete the process.
The HEC is one of the industrial units of State Engineering Corporation (SEC) engaged in the manufacturing of power transformers of different types, with a primary voltage rating of 66 and 132 KV.
Out of six board members, four attended the first round of the meeting.
Commitment to sell 32 entities in 3 years
Under an agreement with the International Monetary Fund, signed for a $6.7 billion loan, the government is committed to sell 32 entities in next three years.
It has finalized a three-pronged strategy, which consists of 11 capital market transactions, 17 strategic private sector partnership that includes PIA and Pakistan Steel Mills and restructuring of three entities, which are to be completed in three to five years.
Minister for Finance and Privatization, Ishaq Dar has recently stated that the government was expecting over Rs100 billion revenues from the capital market transactions.
According to Privatisation Commission officials, the authorities were estimating minimum Rs80 billion gains from 10% sale of OGDCL shares, Rs20 billion by off loading 5% shares of Pakistan Petroleum Limited, Rs15 billion from 10% shares of Untied Bank Limited, Rs50 billion by off loading 20% shares of Habib Bank and Rs10 billion by off loading 10% shares of Allied Bank Limited.
According to the Privatisation Ordinance of 2000, 90 % of net privatisation proceeds will be allocated to debt retirement and 10% to poverty alleviation programs.

Now that the airline will be privatized...

- Will PIA have the same aircraft fleet as it has right now, or will it retire some of its older aircraft and purchase new ones once it is finalized?
- Will the airline maintain its hubs in Karachi and Islamabad, and are there any plans for service resumptions to places it has once served, particularly to Southeast Asia?
- Will the airline upgrade its current fleet to provide state-of-the-art in-flight amenities and features?

-Civil Aviation Authority is upgrading all th airports and making a brand new one in Islamabad (completion next year). Main hubs will be Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi with international flights from peshawar, Quetta, faisalabad, multan, Sialkot and many other cities. Yes, PK has plans to add new destinations in that region and Australia.
-The 777 fleet will go through cabin modifications soon to provide passengers with on board wifi and brand new business/economy cabins.

Privatization is great! Hopefully this will help the airline improve its product and service, whilst helping the airline expand its fleet and routes, and remove any corrupt managers.

Ah that's good. What narrow-body aircraft will PIA get: the A320 family of aircraft, or the B737NG family? And by the way, will PIA's upcoming B77Ws feature lie-flat seats for J class and AVOD across all cabins?

And by the way, since the A310s will be retired from service, which comparable aircraft could be used to handle long-haul routes with less seats than a B77W? Is PIA looking to get the B787, or is it looking towards getting the A330?
