PIA resumes flights to Bangkok

KARACHI: 

In its bid to increase revenue and expand clientele, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has resumed flights to Bangkok, marking the city as its 50th destination in the world.

“PIA’s flight operation to Bangkok, [Thailand] from Karachi has commenced. The first flight PK 890 left for Bangkok from Jinnah International Airport, Karachi early Saturday morning,” the national carrier said in a press release on Saturday.

This is the second international destination the state-owned airline has added in a short span of one week. PIA commenced operations to Najaf, Iraq on Thursday.

PIA did have Bangkok as a destination, but shortage of aircraft and ever-accumulating debt deterred it from keeping the city on its list.

The airlines said it would operate three direct flights to each of the new international destinations every week. Passages from major cities of Pakistan would be facilitated to travel to Karachi to catch the international connecting flight.

“PIA will operate the A320 aircraft for direct flights … between Karachi and Bangkok with convenient connections from major cities of Pakistan,” it said in the statement.

“Flights to Bangkok make the total destinations on PIA’s network to 50.”

A simple ceremony was held at the Jinnah International Airport Karachi where PIA senior officials greeted the passengers before departure of the flight for Bangkok.
