Saudi authorities appreciate PIA’s performance during Hajj

Karachi, October 21, 2016 (PPI-OT): Saudi Arabia’s General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) and the management of King Abdulaziz International Airport Jeddah have appreciated PIA’s performance during Hajj 1437 Hijri.

Terming PIA’s performance as “outstanding and excellent” the Saudi authorities have granted a certificate of appreciation to PIA.

CEO PIA, Mr. Bernd Hildenbrand regarded this a recognition of the hard work of all the concerned departments of the airline who worked as a team due to which punctuality of PIA’s special Hajj flights remained 92.2% in pre-Hajj and 98% in the post-Hajj phase.

He said after serving more than 51,000 hujjaj, the airline is now gearing up for the upcoming Umrah season starting from the first week of November.
