Pakistan International Airline is the Pakistan’s largest company giving air travel facility to the people of Pakistan. It is the Pakistan oldest company with Pakistan’s flagship which was incorporated in 1955.

History of Pakistan International Airline:

The development in air transport is a proof that the whole nation is also moving forward for the development and it is, exactly, the dream seen by Muhammad Ali Jinnah. In the month of October of 1946 on 23rd, an airline with the name Orient Airways Ltd. came into existence. The initial routes of this air ways were Karachi –Lahore- Peshawar, Karachi- Quetta –Lahore and Karachi-Delhi Dacca. But unfortunately this was a private company with limited resources due to which it was unable to work independently, and thus on January 10th of 1955, it merged with Government of Pakistan through the PIAC Ordinance. The new name given to this air way was, Pakistan International Airline (PIA), which become Pakistan’s first international air travel service provider.

After this, the government purchased new planes, hired new staff and management, and made new Directors to run this company. With its reliable and unmatchable services given to the customer, PIA become the most favorite air traveling company of people and become their first priority of traveling. Mr. Zafar Ul Ahsan was the foremost Managing Director of PIA. It becomes world’s frontline air line carrier in the era of Air Commodore Nur Khan who was the Managing Director of Pakistan International Airline from 1959 to 1965. This period has been considered as the “Golden years of PIA”. On 29th April, 1964, with a Boeing 720B, PIA earned the distinction of becoming the first airline from a non-communist country to fly into the People’s Republic of China. PIA’s first service to China was from Karachi to Shanghai via Canton. In 1964-65, PIA expanded its fleet further with the addition of a fourth Boeing 720B and two Fokker F-27s. Serious development had become a reality and the PIA team continued to move ahead with ambitious plans and goals for the national flag carrier.

Pakistan International Airline gives the best Hajj and Umrah Operations in the country:

PIA, Pakistan’s national airline, operates an extensive two-month Hajj operation each year, to and from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Hajj is the sacred pilgrimage undertaken by Muslims from the entire world in the Holy month of Zilhaj, which is the 12th month of the Islamic calendar.

Hajj is the largest congregation of the faithful in recorded history. Over the last 1400 years, Muslims from across the world, assemble in the House of Allah in Makkah, Saudi Arabia.
