PIA to start direct flights to US

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) is all set to start direct flights to the United States, ahead of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s visit to Washington next week. Islamabad has geared up to take direct flights to New York for the first time in the country’s history after discontinuing it in October 2017 via Manchester due to Washington’s security concerns. 

PIA plans on increasing its fleet from 31 to 45 by 2025, purchasing 3-4 aircraft every year instead of leasing them, according to Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan.
