The Pakistan International Airlines will be introducing a voluntary separation scheme to cut down its employees, it was decided on Wednesday.

PIA CEO Arshad Malik said no airline in the world with 14,500 employees can survive when it has a deficit of Rs400 billion and liabilities of Rs100 billion.

He said that in two years, PIA will be among the best airlines in the world.

The Senate Standing Committee on Aviation was briefed on PIA’s Voluntary Separation Scheme (VSS) for its employees in a meeting on Wednesday.

Malik said this scheme will benefit those working for PIA.

He said 39 planes in the airline fleet and 14,500 employees are a contributing factor to the deficit faced by the airline. 

The committee chairperson instructed the CEO to wrap up the fake licenses issue soon. He told him to ask international experts to come to Pakistan and check up on it.

    Dated: 22-9-2020

    The Honorable Prime Minister of Pakistan
    Islamic Republic of Pakistan

    Today marks the 4th Month Anniversary since the tragic accident of PK8303, the plane that crashed shortly before landing in Karachi, Pakistan and took the lives of
    97 souls.

    The Affectees of PK8303 are still waiting for justice. They have not received their luggage yet. In these four months, we have been humiliated in every place where we are entitled. But we didn’t show our feelings.
    The past four months have been surreal. It feels as though it happened yesterday. You can never understand the pain and grief of suddenly losing someone until all
    of a sudden they are gone.

    We affectees of PK8303 joined together to make travel in skies become safer sothat we can prevent such avoidable tragedies from happening again and to prevent other families from experiencing what we have experienced throughout the process.

    The Shaheeds of PK8303 are Always Loved, Always Missed and Always remembered. May Allah Grant them the Highest Ranks in Jannah and forgive their

    Thanking you, Honourable Sir,

    Affectees of PK 8303
