PIA gets overwhelming response on Multan-Jeddah service

MULTAN, Jan 9 (APP): Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) is getting overwhelming response from passengers on launching direct weekly flights from Multan-Jeddah and Multan-Madina. PIA District Manager Baqir Naqvi told APP on Thursday that flights were packed for January because passengers from DG Khan, Jampur, Rajanpur, Kot Addu, Layyah, Muzaffargarh, Alipur, Vehari, Burewala, Arifwala, Sahiwal and other villages and towns of South Punjab were availing the recently launched facility. The national flag carrier had launched its two flights from Multan to Jeddah and Multan to Madina on January five to facilitate  passengers as either they had to travel to Lahore or Karachi to get the direct flight for these two destinations.
He suggested that PIA should add at least two extra flights specially for Multan-Jeddah keeping in view great rush of passengers.
The district manager said if the PIA fly Airbus-310 having 223 seats  configuration replacing existing PK-379 with 189 seats capacity, the step may enhance its business.
“Visas of people are expiring and they needed seats in the airline as they prefer to fly by PIA,” Naqvi added.
“The extra flights will definitely help boosting our business,” he said.
