He further said that flights on the profitable routes, such as Jeddah and Madina, will be increased. The flights from Sialkot to Paris and Barcelona, Peshawar to Sharjah, Peshawar to Al Ain, Multan to  Sharjah will start from next month.

PIA cannot bear any more loss, Soomro said. There are no programmes to run flights in less profitable areas, he added.

Soomro said that PIA flights from Karachi to Dalbadin operate once in a week because of low demand. The airline will take the necessary steps to expand the commercial value and market demand of the flight between Dalbadin and Karachi.
