ISLAMABAD: An aviation expert has said that the Pakistan International Airlines spends over a million dollars on the repainting of each plane. 

“The cost of painting on each plane is around $1 to 1.5 million,” Athar Ansari said in interview with Samaa TV.

He added that the national airliner is repainting its planes for the fifth time in 25 years.

The national airliner decided to change its logo after ten years, according to spokesman of the airline.

“The ibex is rare and faces its enemies all alone in mountains. The national flag-carrier will also do the same,” the spokesman said.

    PIA, Great people to fly with: Yet we are very long way from what this clip portrays. Tie the seat belt as it does not lock in place, hold the back seat as its lock has broken, be ready for the crew to scold you if you ask for assistance, the captain threatens to throw you out of the aircraft if you become insistent, be mentally ready for a delayed flight and loss of baggage during a flight. My personal experience of flying PIA on domestic and International Flights. PIA Announcement “Hope that you will again fly with PIA”. THE MARKHOR MAY CHANGE THE FATE OF PIA FOR THE BETTER
