After the European Commission said that it will relax restrictions imposed on Pakistan International Airlines by allowing specific aircrafts (some 747s and some 310s) to operate in the european bloc, the carrier would like to re-establish some profit-generating routes to Amsterdam, Rome, Glasgow, Frankfurt and Birmingham. There are plans to increase flights between Lahore and London to 5 weekly as well.
PIA eyes lucrative EU routes, to increase flights to London
LAHORE: The Air Safety Committee of the European Union (EU) has notified Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) that it expects that the restriction imposed on a segment of the national carrier's fleet will be partially lifted from July 6, 2007. PIA responded to the notification with a decision that it would re-launch its Boeings on the most profitable routes in the sector, a PIA official told Daily Times on Tuesday.
From July 6 PIA will give priority to the top six profit-generating routes, which includes flights to Amsterdam, Rome, Glasgow, Frankfurt and Birmingham, the official said. PIA will also increase the number of weekly flights from Lahore to London, which currently stands at only two. "We plan to enhance it to the previous number, that is five days a week."
