PIA Spokesperson Denies Reports Of Imminent Shutdown

Amidst the recent speculation surrounding the possible closure of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), the airline’s spokesperson has taken steps to provide clarification.

The PIA spokesperson confirmed the inaccuracy of rumors and concerns regarding the national airline’s closure. They dismissed the unnecessary anxiety stemming from a specific paragraph in an official statement addressing PIA’s financial situation.

The spokesperson also emphasized that setting September 15 as the closure date had unfairly tarnished PIA’s reputation.

It’s worth noting that PIA’s management has achieved significant progress in securing funds to fulfill urgent domestic and international financial obligations, including the prompt payment of employee salaries.

PIA has successfully secured short-term loans amounting to billions of rupees, marking a significant milestone. The National Bank has provided a loan of Rs 13 billion to the national airline, with a repayment period of six to 12 months.
