It appears that Black Friday isn’t over for Pakistan International Airline. We always hear quite the contrary but here comes the PIA’s new discount offer that seems to be more like the one given by a cellular company. PIA has announced 30% off in domestic flights.
The airline had also announced a 25% price cut on its domestic flights back in June – July 2016 as a part of Eid offer.
The new discount is not available on all the flights rather selected one. Travellers would be able to avail discount on flights from Karachi to Islamabad, Karachi to Lahore, Karachi to Faisalabad and Karachi to Multan between 12 AM to 6 AM.
According to PIA spokesperson, the implementation of the new rates would start from 28th November.
In all regards, the offer would surely benefit the selected group of people who most probably need to travel on urgent basis. There are chances that travellers may start changing their routine and schedule just to avail the discount; something very similar to youngsters who postpone their late night sleeps just to talk on discounted call and SMS rates.
Earlier, PIA had also announced to increase the weekly flights from Pakistan to Lahore. The airline would ensure commencement of four to five flights from Lahore to Jeddah and three to four from Lahore to Jeddah.
It seems that PIA is making an endeavour to boost its status, gain more business to undo some loss and regain the past glory. Recently, the national flag carrier has recruited the 15 new flight attendants who passed out from PIA’s 375th Batch and joined the national airline. All these efforts by the National flag bearer are just a step forward towards bringing back the original glory that was once considered to be its trademark.
