First time in Pakistan, Prime Minister Imran Khan’s austerity drive has saved public money worth over Rs100 million during his recent trip to the USA. The PM’s decision to take commercial flights for the US trip and travelling through Qatar airways has set examples for many. The PM scrapped practices of former premiers of engaging at least two long-haul jets.
Pakistan has two US-made 12-seater Gulfstream jets for the visits of the prime minister and the president. Prime Minister Imran Khan took Gulfstream in his recent visits to the Middle Eastern countries but the previous prime ministers did not use this small plane; instead they took the Boing 777 even for visits to Saudi Arabia and other neighbouring countries.
