According to PIA sources here, direct flight from Faisalabad to Glasgow could be on the cards after the expansion of the runway at the Faisalabad airport allowing the bigger aircraft to take off with full load.

Into The Northern Areas
The following pictures have been taken by the Crew of the ATR at Chitral. PIA operates 2 flights daily into Chitral. These flights are the the only lifeline into Chitral during certain months otherwise they provide the locals with easy commuting to Peshawar in 00:35 Min, the journey by road takes around 12-14 hours.

Hotels owned by Pakistan International Airlines

1. Roosevelt Hotel, New York.

A prominent landmark situated on Madison Avenue and 45th Street in midtown New York City, The Roosevelt Hotel was named in honor of President Theodore Roosevelt. The New York City hotel opened September 22, 1924 and just celebrated its 80th anniversary in 2004.

Its historic heritage is reflected in the meticulously restored interiors, designed to capture the original architecture and offer modern-day amenities. With 1,015 well-appointed New York City hotel accommodations, including 52 luxurious suites, The Roosevelt Hotel combines the classic styling of yesteryear with the modern conveniences of today.

FACTS ABOUT ROOSEVELT HOTEL

OPENING DATE:

Originally opened in 1924. The hotel closed in 1995 and reopened in 1997 after a $65-million extensive renovation.
DESCRIPTION:

One step through the doors and guests are transported to the grandeur of old New York. A Grand Dame of Madison Avenue since 1924, the fully renovated building spans over a full city block on Madison Avenue across from Grand Central Station. Guests are a short walk from Broadway, Rockefeller Center, and famous Fifth Avenue shopping.

Named after President Theodore Roosevelt, this midtown gem was built in the thriving Grand Central zone of the 1920s. The Roosevelt Hotel was linked with Grand Central Station by way of an underground passage that once connected the hotel to the train terminal.

Guy Lombardo performed "Auld Lang Syne" for the first time in the hotel's Roosevelt Grill, and Lawrence Welk began his impressive career here.

The Roosevelt Hotel has been seen in several major motion pictures, including "The Boiler Room," "Wall Street," "Quiz Show," "Presumed Innocent," "Malcolm X," "Monday Night Mayhem," "French Connection" and "Maid in Manhattan," starring Jennifer Lopez

10 New Aircraft in Next 2 Years
Wednesday, May 14, 2008
By Saad Hasan

KARACHI: Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) would induct 10 aircraft in the next two years to enhance revenue and ward off the need to retrench employees for saving runaway costs, new Managing Director Aijaz Haroon said on Tuesday.

He also announced rescinding the decision of the previous management to ground eight Boeing 747 aircraft due to excessive cost incurred on the particular model, saying the airline could not afford to lose capacity at present.

“We know they are fuel guzzlers,” he said referring to the grounded aircraft. “But we have to use whatever available capacity at hand. There is no other choice.”

Speaking at a press conference here at the PIA head office, he said it had not yet been decided which aircraft were to be inducted and neither could elaborate on the sources for funding the purchase or lease at a time when the airline was faced with accumulated losses of Rs42 billion.

These aircraft are in addition to seven A320-200 aircraft, which the PIA will start receiving from next year in order to replace the aging fleet of Boeing 737-300. A letter of intent to this effect has already been signed for the lease of the aircraft with Aviation Lease and Finance Company (ALAFCO) of Kuwait.

Despite having no previous experience of heading an organisation unlike his experienced predecessors, Haroon, who is a Boeing 777 pilot, was confident he would be able to steer PIA out of financial crisis.

“I have served this airline for too long,” he said, recalling his own success at the central control and airport services departments. “Three managing directors have failed and I don’t want to fail.”

He criticised the people who were suggesting the PIA to stop serving meals on domestic routes to cut costs, saying they had no aviation background. He, however, did not offer any alternative.

But Haroon minced no word in saying that the national flag carrier would not be privatised and none from ‘common employees’ would be retrenched.

The PIA, suffering from annual losses exceeding Rs13 billion, sank deeper into the quagmire of financial losses during the past 15 months as the top slot of managing director saw three changes and rising fuel prices exacerbated the operational cost. With B747 included, the airline now has a fleet of 42 aircraft.

PIA Will Not Be Privatised: MD

KARACHI: Ejaz Haroon, the newly appointed managing director of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) Corporation, said on Tuesday. Addressing a press conference, he said that all rumours regarding the privatisation of the national airline were baseless and false.

“The government has no intentions to privatise the PIA,” he said, adding that the new management had devised a strategy to pull the airline out of financial crisis in the next 18 months. He said PIA owed Rs 42 billion in debts and blamed the previous management for the financial crisis. He said the management would not launch any drive to fire existing staff. PIA has around 18,000 employees, of which 8,000 are working on contract. He defended his action of sacking top officials by saying that the airline would save Rs 17.5 million per month. He said PIA would buy 10 advanced aircraft in the next two years. He said the airline would use five B-747 aircrafts for Haj and Umra flights starting second week of June. A meeting of PIA’s Board of Directors presided over by Defence Minister Ahmed Mukhtar was also held to discuss issues facing the airline.
