PIA has demanded of the federal government to review its bilateral air-link agreements with the gulf countries and some limitations should be imposed over the gulf countries airlines.
Chairman, PIA Ahmed Saeed Awan was talking with newsmen on the occasion of Federal Defence Minister Rao Sikandar Iqbal’s visit to PIA head office here.
PIA will begin its flights to Houston, Los Angeles, Moscow, Milan, Shanghai, Ras-ul-Khaimah and Fujairah in the first half of the current year, he told the minister of defence. The airline will also include Glasgow, Damascus, Nairobi and Male in its global network till the end of the current year, he further said.
Talking on PIA’s modernization programme, Awan said that seven new Turbo Prop airplanes would replace the archaic Fokker airliners till December this year.

PIA's been talking about Houston on and off for years, I'll believe it when I see the old green plane sitting at IAH. However, I have no doubts that such a flight would work. There is a very large Pakistani population in Houston (a large Indian one as well; AI has wanted to serve IAH for a while too).

BN747- Yeah, you guys get tons of 747s down there. But up here at SFO, were number three! Oh well, at least we are getting EK and VN. That is going to kick ass. Later on, we will probably get AI as well. I hope so anyway.

Instead of starting MXP-MOS-NBO-DAM and MLE...the last 4 were failed destinations of the past for PIA...they should first look at fully restarting its Far East Asian network to SIN-KUL-CGK-BKK-HKG-MNL from KHI and LHE!!!
