KARACHI: The Board of Directors of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) were reconstituted on Wednesday.

A statement said that in accordance with Pakistan International Airlines Corporation Act 1956, the federal government has reconstituted the Board of Directors of PIA with immediate effect.

It said that the nominated members of the newly constituted board  includes Aslam Khaliq, Naseer NS Jaffer, Mian Muhammad Mansha, Arif Habib, Sarfraz A Rehman, Imran Khan, Muhamamd Ali Gardezi, Secretary Aviation, Ex-Officio and Dr Waqar Masood Khan, Secretary Finance, Ex-Officio.

Bogged down by financial losses, PIA has become a bone of contention for successive governments. World’s highest employee to aircraft ratio, fiscal leakages and excessive interference of unions in management affairs has made it a difficult-to-run state-owned organisation.

Why bailouts. Sell the airline otherwise soon 100 billions a year would go to the airline.

PIA Board reconstituted. Unfortunatly favouritism has been prevailed. No representation from the Provinces in the new Board. PIA can not claim to be a national carrier.
