PIA suffers Rs 1.0 b loss due to strike

The national flag carrier has suffered a loss of Rs 1.0 billion due to the ongoing protest, said PIA General Manager Public Affairs, Mamoon Rasheed.

Talking to APP here on Thursday, he said passengers were being facilitated through private airlines including Shaheen Airline and AirBlue.

Today, all international and domestic flights were cancelled as the protesters blocked all entry and exit points besides locking the offices, he added.

Only three international flights coming from London and Manchester were hardly entertained, he maintained.
