The new airline was initially a pilot project, registered in Calcutta as Orient Airways
Ltd., on 23rd October 1946. With Mr. A.M. Ispahani as the Chairman and Air Vice
Marhshal O.K. Carter as the General Manager of the new air carrier, an operating
license was obtained in May 1947ng with Calcutta as the base. Four Douglas DC-3s

the pnopulation between Delhi and Karachi, the two capitals. Later, Orient Airways
transferred its base to Pakistan gfand established the vital, link between Karachi and
Dacca, the two capitals of the two wings of Pakistan. With na skeleton fleet of just two
DC-3s, three crew and twelve mechanics, Orient Airways launched its scheduled
goperations in a fairy-tale fashion. The initial routes were Karachi-Lahore-Peshawar,
Karachi-Quetta-Lahore annd Karachi-Delhi Calcutta-Dacca. By the end of 1949,
Orient Airways had acquired 10 DC-3s and 3 Convair 240s which it operated on these PIA - Convair - 240
routes. In 1950, it had become increasingly apparent that additional capacity wouldt
have to be inducted in order to cater to the growing needs of the sub-cotrjntinent.

Orient Airways was a privately owned company, with limited capitaul and resources. It
could not be expected to grow and expand on its own. It was then that the Government
ofrj Pakistan decided to form a state-owned airline and invited Orient Airways to
merge with it. The outcome of tthe merger was the birth of a new airline, named

and Rojme. At first, there was much criticism regarding this venture as the public could
not comprehend or agree trjwith the need to operate an international route when
priority, in their opinion, should be given to other projectrts which were considered
more vital, for the growth of a new and developing country. However, PIA's priorityjt
then as well as now, was to serve the Pakistani community at large. The need to
provide transportation to tjhe expatriates has remained one of the foremost priorities of
the national airjrline.

In 1959, the Government of Pakistan appointed an Air Force Officer, Air Commodore
Nur Khan (who later rose to the rank of Air Vice Marshal) as the Managing Directortr
of PIA. With him at the helm of affairs, PIA took such a turn around in a short span of
6 years, that the aijrline gained the stature and status of one of the frontline carriers of

Expansion, growth, development were the key-words that jthe new management was
committed to. In March 1960, PIA launched its first jet service (Boeing 707) on the

enabled PIA to become thej first Asian Airline to operate a jet aircraft. A train-blazer,

Pakistan, is a Islamic republic located in the heart of Asia.

It lies on the north-west of the Indian sub-continent, with Iran on the west of it and
Afghanistan in the north.

With a population of 140 million, Pakistan is divided into 4 provinces, Punjab (capital:
Lahore) Sindh (capital: Karachi) Frontier (capital: Peshawar) and Balochistan (capital:
Quetta, Islamabad), the capital of Pakistan is a picturesque and well-planned city in the
North.

Pakistan is a land richly endowed with Nature's bounty-mighty mountains, ancient
deserts, lush-green valleys and sparkling rivers.

Pakistan International's biggest asset is Pakistan, an attractive tourist wonderland. Wide-
open spaces, lush green fields, the world's largest collection of limitless mountain chains
and peaks, lakes and rivers on the same mammoth scale, Pakistan's natural attractions
have few equals. For the world's people, Pakistan presents a totally different face of
Mother Nature. An off-beat, exciting place, coupled with the traditional warm hospitality
of its friendly people.

As jaded tourists worldwide hunt for new settings and experiences, PIA has been playing
the role of linking places and bringing people closer, from the four continents of the
world. PIA has played a pivotal role in opening up the county's natural and historical
riches by air linking then with the national and international mainstream.

When PIA wings to isolated scenic spots such as Gilgit, Skardu, Swat or any of the other
over two dozen colourful domestic destinations, the national airline is involved in the
business of meshing its international goals and targets along with its national
responsibilities.

Thus, PIA assists in putting in motion a tourism nucleus, whereby a feast of sights and
sounds, of action and entertainment is prepared for the tourist in search of an off-beat
adventure.

The national carrier has consistently, over the last 4 decades, played an active role in the
development and promotion of tourism in Pakistan. It is all geared up to give the tourists
not just good value for their money but also make their trips to this charming country
truly memorable.

The twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad lie against the backdrop of Margalla Hills
on the Potohar plateau. On the basis of archaeological discoveries, archaeologists believe
that a distinct culture flourished on this plateau as far back as 3,000 years.

The material remains found on the site of the city of Rawalpindi prove the existence of a
Buddhist establishment contemporary to Taxila but less celebrated than its neighbor. It
appears that the ancient city went into oblivion as a result of the Hun devastation. The
first Muslim invader, Mahmood of Ghaznavi (979 1030 A.D.), gifted the ruined city to a
Gakkhar Chief, Kai Gohar. The town, however being on invaders’ route, could not
prosper and remained deserted until Jhanda Khan, another Gakhar Chief, restored it and

gave the name of Rawalpindi after the village Rawal in 1493 AD. Rawalpindi remained
under the rule of Gakkhars till Muqarrab Khan, the last Gakkhar ruler, was defeated by
Sikhs in 1765 AD. Sikhs invited traders from other places to settle here. This brought the
city into prominence. Sikhs lost the city to British in 1849 AD. It then became the
General Headquarters of British Army and they established a cantonment south of the
old city. In 1879, the Punjab Northern Railway was extended to Rawalpindi but the train
service was formally inaugurated on January 01, 1886.

Over the years, Rawalpindi has retained its traditional flavour. However, some modern
residential areas and buildings have come up all over the town since the creation of
Pakistan. Pakistan’s new capital, Islamabad being the twin city of Rawalpindi, equally
shares the same archaeological and historical background.

Legend has it that Lahore was founded by two sons of Lord Rama about 4,000 years ago.
Historically it has been proved that Lahore is about 2,000 years old. Hieun-tasng, the
famous Chinese pilgrim has given a vivid description of Lahore city which he visited in
the early parts of the seventh century A.D.



For 200 years, beginning from about 1525 A.D., Lahore was a thriving cultural centre of
the great Mughal Empire. Mughal Emperors beautified Lahore, with palaces, gardens and
mosques. During the British regime many monuments sprang up in Lahore which
blended beautifully with the Mughal, Gothic and Victorian styles of architecture.



Lahore is the second largest city in Pakistan and the provincial capital of Punjab. Apart
from being the cultural and academic centre of the country, Lahore is the Mughal "Show-
Window" of Pakistan. The origins of Lahore are shrouded in the mists of antiquity.
Reminiscence of its hoary past are the remains of a subterranean temple in the northern
part of the Royal Fort, attributed to Lord Rama, the legendary here of Ramayana. Lying
on the main trade and invasion routes to the sub-continent, Lahore has been ruled and
plundered by a number of dynasties and herdes. However it touched the zenith of its
glory during the rule of the Mughals. The Mughals, who were famous as builders, gave
Lahore some of its finest architectural monuments that are extinct today.

Karachi, the largest and the most populous city of Pakistan presents an interesting and

colourful combination of the old and new. The narrow twisting lanes and alleys of the old

city throb with life alongside wide metalled roads and elegant modern buildings. Within

the city, talented artisans with age-old skills produce handicrafts of exquisite beauty.


Karachi offers a variety of pleasant attractions: wide sunny beaches, deep-sea fishing,

yachting, golf and horseracing all year round. Its markets and bazaars offer an endless

variety of exciting shopping including indigenous handicrafts, particularly rugs and

carpets of rare design and beauty.


Karachi's recorded history goes back to the 18th century when it was small fishing village

known as Kalachi-jo Goth. With the development of its harbour it gradually grew into a

large city and an important centre of trade and industry. Its selection as the capital of

Pakistan in 1947 added to its importance and accelerated its rate of growth and

development. Though the seat of Government shifted to Islamabad, Karachi still remains

the centre of commerce and industry.

Peshawar derives its name from a Sanskrit word "Pushpapura" meaning the city of
flowers. Peshawar's flowers were mentioned even in Moghal Emperor Babur's
memoirs.

Alexander's legions and the southern wing of his army were held up here in 327
B.C. for forty days at a fort excavated recently, 27 ½ kms 17 miles) north-east of
Peshawar at Pushkalavati (lotus city) near Charsadda.

The great Emperor Babur marched through the historic Khyber Pass to conquer
South Asia in 1526 and set up the Moghal Empire in the Indo-Pakistan
subcontinent.

The pass and the valley have resounded to the tramp of marching feet as successive
armies hurtled down the crossroad of history, pathway of commerce, migration and
invasion by Aryans, Scythians, Persians, Greeks, Bactrians, Kushans, Huns, Turks'
Mongols and Moghals.

And Peshawar is now, as always, very much a frontier town. The formalities of
dress and manner give way here to a free and easy style, as men encounter men
with a firm hand-clasp and a straight but friendly look. Hefty handsome men in
baggy trousers and long, loose shirts, wear bullet studded bandoleers across their
chests or pistols at their sides as a normal part of their dress.

There is just that little touch of excitement and drama in the air that makes for a
frontier land. An occasional salvo of gun fire-no, not a tribal raid or a skirmish in
the streets but a lively part of wedding celebrations.

Remember, we are in the land of the Pathans - a completely male-dominated
society. North and south of Peshawar spreads the vast tribal area where lives the
biggest tribal society in the world, and the most well known, though much
misrepresented.

Pathans are staunch Muslims. Their typical martial and religious character has been
moulded by their heroes, like Khushal Khan Khattak, the warrior poet and Rehman
Baba, a preacher and also a poet of Pushto language.

Today, they themselves guard the Pakistan-Afghanistan border along the great
passes of the Khyber, the Tochi, the Gomal and others on Pakistan's territory, but
before independence they successfully defied mighty empires, like the British and
the Moghal and others before them, keeping the border simmering with action, and
the flame of freedom proudly burning.

Peshawar is the great Pathan city. And what a city ! Hoary with age and the
passage of twenty-five centuries, redolent with the smell of luscious fruit and
roasted meat and tobacco smoke, placid and relaxed but pulsating with the
rhythmic sound of craftsmen's hammers and horses' hooves, unhurried in its
pedestrian pace and horse-carriage traffic, darkened with tall houses, narrow lanes
and overhanging balconies, intimate, with its freely intermingling crowd of
townsmen, tribals, traders and tourists- this is old Peshawar, the journey's end or at

least a long halt, for those travelling up north or coming down from the Middle
East or Central Asia, now as centuries before when caravans unloaded in the many
caravan series now lying deserted outside the dismantled city walls or used as

Quetta, the capital of Balochistan, 1692 metres above sea level, lies at the mouth of
Bolan Pass. It has three large craggy mountains. Chiltan, Zarghun and Koh-e-
Murdar,that seem to brood upon this pleasant town. There are other mountains that
form a ring around it. Their copper red and russet rocks and crests that are powdered
with snow in winters add immense charm to the town.

Quetta is connected to the rest of the country by road, rail and air. The R.C.D.
Highway connects it to Karachi and then on (via Koh-e-Taftan) to Tehran, Iran, 1435
kms away. The road to Sibi connects it with Punjab and upper Sindh. The road via
Loralai - Fort Munro -D.G. Khan and Multan is a short route for Punjab. The Chaman
Road is a link between the county and the Afghan border. Quetta is linked by PIA
with Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad by daily flights.

Quetta is an excellent base for further exploration of Balochistan. Kan Mehtarzai (224
metres), the highest railway station in Asia, is a two-hour drive away. Loralai, the
almond bowl of the country, is 265 kms away. Besides, there are numerous other
valleys that are fascinating places to explorers.

Quetta can rightly be called the fruit basket of Pakistan. Plums, peaches,
pomegranates, apricots, apples, grapes (locally called zaitoon), some unique varieties
of melon like "Garma" and "Sarda" and cherries, pistachios and almonds are all
grown in abundance. Some pistachios are also grow in Qila Saif Ullah also. Saffron
grows very well on mountains around 5000 ft (1524 metres) high. It is being
cultivated on a commercial scale here. Tulip is an indigenous flower of Pakistan. The
yellow and red          varieties   of tulip        grow wild       around Quetta.

Pakistan's Northern Areas are as fascinating as its Southern region. It is here that the
world's three famous mountain ranges meet- the Himalayas, the Karakorams and the
Hindukush. The whole of Northern Pakistan has come to be known as a paradise for
mountaineers, climbers, trekkers and hikers.



In the northern regions of Pakistan, at a stone's throw from the Amu Darya, is Ban-e-
Dunya "the roof of the world." This was the name given to the great Pamir plateau, apex
of six of the mightiest mountain ranges of the world.



The historic Karakoram pass 5,575 metres, an ancient trading route between Kashmir and
Sinkiang, gives its name to the range west of it which forms the watershed between the
Indus and the Central Asian deserts. The eastern boundary of the Karakoram is the upper
Shyok river from where it extends over 322 kms. Westwards to the Karumbar river and
the Hindukush range. To the north the Karakoram is bounded by the Shaksgam tributary
of the Yarkand river and south by the Indus. Here, the Nanga Parbat 8,126 metres massif
is the western anchor of the great Himalayan range which stretches in an arc 24,124 kms.
East to Burma, a boundary and barrier, "the razor's edge" which for centuries has
determined the destiny of the Indian sub-continent.



Such is the setting of the Karakoram range, this remnant of a primeval ice age, "the third
pole," with extensive glacier systems and the greatest concentration of lofty mountains in
the world. Some of the largest glaciers outside sub-polar regions flow in the Karakorams.
For its sheer mountain grandeur and breath-taking panorama of beauty, few places can

match the superb landscape through which the Karakoram Highway snakes. A fantastic
and unforgettable spectacle is the passage of the Highway along the Batura glacier, rated
among the world's seventh largest. Skardu, capital of Baltistan is perched 2,438 metres
above sea level in the backdrop of the great peaks of the Karakoram mountain range.

Skardu is linked to the national capital, Islamabad by PIA which operates one flight daily.
The air journey is full of thrills and would itself be regarded as the highlight of the visit.
After following the same air route which connects Gilgit to Islamabad/Rawalpindi, the
plane turns right and flies over the gorge of the Indus river. Enormous rock faces rise on
either side and at times it seems as if the wing tips of the plane would almost scrape
against them. They never do. Baltistan is known as the "Tibet-e-Khurd" or Little Tibet
since its life-style reflects that of the roof of the World and Land of Lamas.

It borders on the Chinese province of Sinkiang and Indian-occupied Kashmir. The tourist
season is from April to October. The maximum temperature is 27C and the minimum
(October) 8C. Apart from its incomparable cluster of mountain peaks and glaciers
Baltistan's five valleys- Shigar, Skardu, Khaplu, Rondu and Kharmang are noted for their
luscious peaches, apricots, apples and pears. Shigar valley, 32 kms. by jeep from Skardu
is the gateway to the mountain peaks of the Karakorams. Skardu has a historic Fort atop a
ridge known as the Mindoq-Khar or Castle of Queen Mindoq and three lovely lakes. The
two- Kachura Lake 29 kms. and Stapra Lake 8 kms. from Sakrdu- are ideal for fishing.

Permission: Permission for mountaineering and trekking is issued by the Tourism
Division, Government of Pakistan, Opp: Women's College F-7/2, Islamabad. (Telephone:
92-51-9203509). Fishing permits are issued by the Fisheries Department at Gilgit and
Skardu.

HOTEL SCRIBE

Let us share our passion for Paris with you! Paris is a
city for all seasons, and one which appeals to all the
sense. It is a world centre for art, culture, style and
business. It reflects the best of France its culture,
cuisine, fashion, elegant shopping, music and
entertainment. The Hotel Scribe opened its doors in
1860 as The Jockey Club, frequented by the rich and
famous. From that same doorstep, one finds oneself
at the heart of Paris, with the Opera House next door
and the boutiques of the Faubourg Saint-Honore,
nearby. The Hotel Scribe extends a warm welcome
to a refined clientele, which can enjoy its elegant
atmosphere, full of grace of periods past and wholly
dedicated to providing unobtrusive and attentive
personal service.

Enter the lobby of the Hotel Scribe and experience the magical splendors of the Second
Empire period and memories of the original Jockey Club. The hustle and bustle of the
city is hushed the soothing luxury of marble, wood paneling, and softened by the filtered
lights of the Baccarat chandeliers and Egyptian-inspired wall sconces. Just imagine-the
world’s first filmgoers passed through this same entrance to see the Lumiere Brothers
cinema shows at the end of the last century. One can also stroll through the hotel’s Art
Gallery, dedicated to portraying the works of contemporary artists, another way in which
the Hotel Scribe continues its longstanding relationship with the arts.

                                     Spacious, bright and elegant suites and lounges
                                     reflect the Hotel Scribe’s flair for historical detail.
                                     Each floor symbolizes a prestigious place in French
                                     history... "Tuileries, Vendome, and Fontainebleau."
                                     The royal blues and deep reds of the Empire period
                                     are touches that blend with antique prints and period
                                     furniture to illustrate the rich French heritage.

PIA KARAKORAM AIR SAFARI

On top of the world

Rarely do you experience a phenomenon so unique, so exhilarating, that it leaves you
catching your breath at the sheer spectacle and magnitude of nature's boundless beauty.

One such indisputably rare experience can be had on board PIA's 90 minute Air safari
flight to and along the Karakorams. The thrill of viewing some of the world's tallest
mountain peaks, along with some of the picturesque valleys, dales, lakes and glaciers
from the comfort of your aeroplane seat is a novel, and at the same time a highly
stimulating experience, the memory of which lingers long after the flight is over.

Soon after take off from Islamabad, the plane flies directly over the enchanting Northern
Areas of Pakistan - over the remote and picturesque valleys of Hunza, Gilgit, Swat,
Kaghan, Naran and Chitral - enabling you to marvel at some of the nature's most
spectacular sights.

As the aircraft, PIA's Boeing 737, is skillfully maneuvered and controlled by some of the


                                                                73
PAKISTAN INTERNATIONAL AIRLINE


airline's specially trained and high-rated pilots, the passengers are treated to a 'one of a
kind' experience - a sky dance of the Karakoram and Hindu Kush ranges which include
some of the highest peaks in the world.

You can see the majestic Nanga Parbat (8,125m), the beautiful Rakaposhi (7,788m) and
above all, the spectacular K-2 (the second highest peak in the world) towering above all
others at 8,611 meters, leaving you simply spellbound.

The invincible majesty, the irrevocable beauty, the awesome splendor of one of the
nature's modest feats - the snow capped peaks, in all their glory and grandeur provide one
of the most moving and awe-inspiring moments of your life.

A close aerial view - merely a few kilometers away from the great peaks - beside
providing some thrills and chills is, undoubtedly, a wonder that motivates you to a better
understanding of the lure and charm that has seduced mountaineers to take on the
perilous task of conquering these giants of nature, since time immemorial. A close visual,
though intangible, contact with the manifestations of nature is a mystical experience that
transcends one from the peripheral to the spiritual.

A dance with the clouds in a world that seems to exist in its original form; a natural
beauty - untouched, unscathed and unspoiled is a sight that would, certainly move only
the nature lovers but also the most cynical amongst us.

Come           fly         the          adventure           of          a          lifetime!

PIA has played an active role in Pakistan’s export and has pioneered the opening of
certain markets Around the globe for Pakistani commodities, particularly perishables
(fresh fruits, vegetables, fresh Flowers, seafood). Inspire of open sky policy since 1992,
as a result of which other carriers have been able to induct capacity at will, PIA cargo has
retained its market share in the uplift of perishables. Annually PIA is uplifting 13,000
tons of perishables, out of which significant movement is the uplift of mangoes during
June-September, which is approximately 5000 tones. PIA keeps a very close liaison with
exporters of Pakistan directly and through various associations, Chambers of Commerce
and Export Promotion bureau. As a national carrier, we remain aware of our
responsibility to assist exports and we continuously plan and formulate policies to ensure
efficient flow of exports. We have also actively participated in various export exhibitions
of Pakistani goods all over the world, by carrying exhibition goods on special terms.

While speaking to the shareholders, he said the airline was able to achieve revenue of
Rs.64.07 billion indicating an increase of Rs. 6.2 billion in 2005 over 2004, which
translates into a growth of 11 %. Moreover, PIA experienced improvements in all key
performance indicators including yield, market share, and number of passengers, aircraft
utilization, service standards and market value of share. The financial results for the year
ended December 31, 2005 still reflect a change of color although it conceals more than it
reveals. The other wise profitable bottom-line was dented by an impact of Rs. 7.8 billion
on account of increase in the price of fuel alone and had the fuel prices remained the
same at last years level, there would have been a pre -tax profit of Rs. 3.328 billion in FY
- 2005, as against a loss before tax of 4.513 billion, as per financial results for the year
2005. Fuel prices continued to rock the entire airline industry, as it impacted the budget
and projections of most airlines and as per statistics, IATA Carriers collectively recorded
a loss of over US$ 7.5 billion .The fuel cost constitutes 43 % of PIA's total cost of
service, however the present management is undertaking a lot of corrective measures in
marketing, operation and human resource areas to face the challenge.

In order to promote tourism, the airline has embarked on a strategy to introduce a newly
designed product line, PIA holidays. PIA has entered into a code sharing agreement with
Turkish airlines for flights on Istanbul-Karachi-Istanbul sector and Islamabad- Istanbul-
Islamabad sector. PIA's Umra 2005 operation was a roaring success. It operated
additional 222 extra flights besides normal scheduled flights to Jeddah carrying 151,000
pilgrims this year. PIA transported 124,000 Hajj pilgrims to Saudi Arabia through 349
flights to the holy land from the four provincial capitals and Islamabad, he added.

He said the airline inducted three B-777-200 ER in the year 2004 and in the beginning of
the current year, two B 777-200LR, world's longest range aircraft have joined the PIA
fleet. The airline has also signed an agreement for acquisition of A TR aircraft which will
replace PIA's aging F-27 aircraft fleet operated on socio economic routes. The present
management strongly believes in transparency and an MOU was signed between PIA and
Transparency International last year for the implementation of transparency in the
airline's procurement system. PIA has also started offering quality customer services and
innovative products and has introduced free limousine service for pick n drop for its
business class passengers worldwide; baggage information delivery linked to the World
Tracer System at Atlanta has been introduced allowing the passengers to check the status
of their mishandled baggage on-line.

Further informing the valued shareholders he said that an internationally recognized and
accepted evaluation system IOSA designed to access airline's operational management
has been implemented in PIA. This system uses internationally recognized quality audit
principals and addresses the service areas that are considered most essential to the
operational safety of the airline. As part of IOSA requirement PIA has organized a
dedicated set up to institute emergency response planning throughout its network.

294th            Meeting              of           Board              of           Directors

Karachi, Monday, April 03, 2006

The 294th Meeting of the Board of Directors of PIA was held at 10 am at PIA Head
Office Karachi. The Chairman & CEO, PIA Mr. Tariq Kirmani was in the Chair. The
meeting approved the audited accounts and reviewed the performance for FY 2005.

The Board noted with satisfaction that the airline was able to achieve revenue of Rs.
64.07 billion indicating an increase of Rs. 6.2 billion in 2005 over 2004, which translates
into a growth of 11 %. This is despite the intense competition faced by the airline from
private domestic carriers in Pakistan as well as foreign carriers.

The airline, as indeed the entire aviation industry, was adversely affected by the
unprecedented rise in the price of fuel. For PIA, the fuel bill increased from Rs. 17.9
billion in 2004 to Rs. 26.5 billion in 2005 reflecting a rise of 47 %. The impact of price
increase alone was Rs. 7.8 billion.

PIA was however able to restrict the increase in all other operating costs (other than fuel)
to 5.7 % as against the inflation rate of around 10 %.

All key performance indicators relating to the aviation industry namely, Yield, Market
Share, Seat Factor, Number of Passengers, Aircraft Utilization, Service Standards, and
Share Value showed significant improvement over FY 2004.

In 2005, PIA carried 3.2 million international passengers translating into a market share
of 49%, and in the domestic arena 2.2 million achieving 65 % share.

Seat Factor on scheduled services was 73.1 % in 2005 as against 69.1 % in 2004. Both
domestic and international seat factors recorded increase. Passenger and freight yields
have also recorded improvement over 2004.

Fleet utilization was higher than last year & even better than the industry average. Add to
this the fact that PIA had the highest flight punctuality in the last 26 years of its history,
which stood at 87% in 2005. More encouraging than this was the PIA flight regularity
that was an unprecedented 98.2% in 2005. This means that all scheduled flights flew
regularly without being cancelled, and the cancellation percentage was less then 2% and
87% of these flights flew on time.

In 2005 a high strategic priority in the Corporate Planning area was assigned to reduce
the overall fleet age from the existing 21 years to less than 9 years in the current Business
Plan tenure. PIA currently has a fleet size of 41 aircraft. With the planned inclusion of 29
new aircraft by 2011, PIA fleet size will increase after some old aircraft are retired or


                                             86
PAKISTAN INTERNATIONAL AIRLINE


disposed off, to 52 aircraft. Of the 29 aircraft, 7 will be the new A TR 42-500 turbo props
besides the twelve 777 LRs and ERs planned for, which are already in the process of
acquisition (three ER's and two LR's have already arrived, and three more are scheduled
to arrive and negotiations to acquire four more on lease is underway).

The reorganizing of PIA's Marketing Department contributed immensely to the overall
functional efficiency and performance indicators of the airline. The Marketing
Department was restructured into four 'income streams' namely Passenger, Cargo, Group
Tours & Charters and Other Business (which includes the newly activated Speed Ex,
PIA's Courier Service.

In 2004, the average number of comment cards received was around 200 per week, of
which complaints averaged 42 percent. In 2005, with customer involvement and new
methods of their engagement on board, they have responded with a feedback of averaging
2000 comment cards per week, of which the complaints fell down to 19 percent. This
amply proves and is a sure indicator of the fact that the strategy and policies of PIA are
on the right path to recovery and its positioning as a world-class airline.

Recently, PIA acquired the IOSA Certification for all the operational areas and became
one of 50 airlines in the world to achieve this feat. Similarly, Engineering and
Maintenance had successfully acquired EASA Certification after a detailed audit
conducted by relevant agencies. This enhances cost and functional efficiency, together
with enhanced growth and improved competitiveness of the airline.

The meeting was attended by Mr. Kamal Afsar, Syed Muhammad Fazal Agha, Mr.
Nawid Ahsan, Maj. Gen. ® Muhammad Ashraf Chaudhry, Dr. Sughra Junejo, Mr.
M.H.K Khaishgi, Mr. Asad Ali Khan and Mr. Javed Saifullah Khan.

Karachi, Tuesday, March 14, 2006

Pakistan is nourished by the Indus that originates in the Himalayas and flows down into
the Arabian Sea. It is the home of one of the oldest Civilization on earth, the Indus Valley
Civilization. From the north where six of the highest mountains ranges meet, it flows
down the beautiful valleys of the Frontier, across the rich plains of the Punjab, skirting
the mountainous Baluchistan, down the plains and deserts of Sindh, until it finally flows
down into the Arabian Sea. Rich in culture and heritage, its motifs and colors have had a
unique quality, cherished by millions through the centuries. Pakistan archeological finds,
one of the oldest in the world, is exemplified by Mehrgarh finds, some 9,500 years old.




                                            87

Pakistan International Airline, the national flag carrier, in its effort to portray the rich
heritage it inherits has decided to change its livery partially, specifically its tail, to reflect
the colors and artistic excellence of its four Provinces and proudly fly around the globe,
for one and all to reflect on its grandeur.

In so doing, it has chosen some of the finest of motifs characteristic of the four Provinces
comprising Pakistan. Not only was this need for change qualified by the massive change
occurring in PIA as a whole, but was also reinforced by the national flag carriers desire to
pool in its humble contribution in the integration of the country as a whole. The result is a
colorful tail of PIA's airplanes, which in itself is named after the most remarkable
characteristic of each proVince. All this is bonded by the retention of the National Flag
repositioned for more emphasis on the main body of the fuselage. PIA aircrafts will be
done in this livery on the tail over approximately a two year time span, before the entire
fleet is completed

Let us take the Provinces one by one and describe what each tail design represents for the
entire fleet of PIA aircrafts.

Frontier: Home of the proud Pathans, the North West Frontier Province stretches from
the famous Khyber Pass in the north-west to the mighty Karakorum Range in the north-
east. The airplane is named after the Khyber Pass, and the tail is resplendent by the
"Phulkari" (flowering) pattern that reflects a rich and colorful tradition of embroidery
generally done on shawls, shirts and linen. Often bearing strong Greek influence from the
days of Ghandhara civilization, these vibrant geometric patterns and motifs, a'il in
primary colors, reflect exquisite detail and precision of craftsmanship. The tail of the
airplane bears witness to this design.




Punjab: As the land of the five rivers the Province of Punjab in Pakistan offers a feast
for the senses. With its lush valleys and verdant plains the crafts of the Punjab have a rich
and vibrant tradition from the 'royal' craftsmanship of its urban centers to the village
crafts of the rural areas. The patterns and the motifs vary from floral designs to figures of
birds to majestic elephants. Its historical buildings and gardens, its glasswork shimmering
in the Sheesh Mahal, the art of Punjab is best exemplified in the exquisite tile decoration
of the Wazir Khan Mosque in Lahore, which is the design on the tail of the airplane. The
airplane is named after the, Garden of the Moghuls.



                                               88
PAKISTAN INTERNATIONAL AIRLINE




Baluchistan: Pakistan's Baluchistan Province stretches from the coast of Makran in the
west to the mountain passes of Bolan and Gomal in the north. This is the land of the
thousand of years old Juniper Forests. The local craftsmanship reflects the proud Baluch
tribal tradition. A striking and colorful reflection of robust creativity is seen in the kilims,
carpets and rugs woven with wool, goat or camel hair and mixed yarn. The pattern is
mostly bold geometric motifs in primary colors dominated by red and making it
strikingly beautiful. This is the design and motif on the tail. And the airplane is named
after the Orchards of Baluchistan.




Sindh: Situated in the heart of the Indus Valley Civilization, exemplified by the ruins
Moen-jo-daro, the Sindh Province in Southern Pakistan has an ancient and rich tradition
of art and crafts. Among them, Hala tile work is one of the most striking representations
of a craftsmanship that transforms clay into an object of undying and pristine beauty.
Exquisitely adorned with electric blue and white floral patterns and motifs, the Hala craft
signifies a labour of love and a passion for perfection. These floral patterns and motifs
constitute the design of the aircrafts tails and the aircraft itself is named after the deserts
of Sindh.

The National Calamity

Karachi, Sunday, October 9, 2005

Responding to the national calamity, PIA, the flag carrier of Pakistan, has decided to help
in which ever way it can to alleviate the sufferings of the victims of this great national
disaster. Chairman PIA, Tariq Kirmani is personally monitoring the relief effort of PIA.

All PIA employees have also decided to contribute two days of their monthly salaries to
the Presidents' Relief Fund. In addition PIA has also offered to carry relief goods from all
its stations in its global network, free of charge. PIA is already operating extra flights to
facilitate the travel of the near and dear ones of this great tragedy, to the venue of the
natural disaster.

A corporation should have a clear Vision, a Mission, Values and a set of Code of Ethics,
to function as an efficient and a vibrant organization geared to meet the needs of its
valued customers.

Mr. Tariq Kirmani, Chairman PIAC, emphasized upon these principles in his first address
to the senior management of the airline. He said that all employees of PIA should be
involved in evolving of these standards, and once these are recorded, everyone should
own these and ensure adherence to. Any deviation, thereafter, would entail punitive
action, he added.

Referring to the human resource, element, he said, no one could deny the significance of
this important factor. It is the members, which make a family, an organization or for that


                                             91

matter a nation, good or not so good. The managers are leaders in their own right and
they should lead from the front. He stressed upon implementation of decisions and
policies and said there should be harmony in what one says and what one practices. He
also expressed his belief that if one treats others well the response is always good.

The Chairman said there is a great potential in the national airline, which needs to be
disciplined for making it a profitable and a great airline, a status it enjoyed some years
back. We 'all know that perception is more important than reality. It is the perception of
our customers, which needs to be improved. We have to handle our weaknesses first and
only then make our strong points public. Apart from the human resource, the areas of
marketing, finance, operations also have to improve. He further stated that there is a need
to work together as a team through consensus.

He also emphasized on training, which, he said, plays an important role in human
resource development of any organization. He assured the managers that all decisions
taken would be fair and honest, in the interest of the Corporation. Stressing the
significance of two-way communication, he assured to hold regular communicative
meetings ,aimed at critical evaluation of the policies for improving and making PIA a
profitable Corporation.

History of PIA Training Centre

Welcome to the PIA Training Centre, Karachi-an institution of comprehensive instruction
dedicated towards imparting quality training in all the major areas associated with civil
air transport.
The centre is housed in a three-storied spacious building, essentially self-contained in
facilities and centrally air-conditioned. It is situated about 300 yards from the
Corporate Head Office building of PIA.
The prestige and esteem that the Training Centre enjoys has been a result of tireless
efforts expended, since the very inception of PIA in 1956, in making the programmes of
study worthy of its name. Training has been offered for PIA employees as well as for
other airlines' staff intending to work, or already working as members of the cockpit and
flight service crew, as passenger service and marketing staff, and as mechanics and
engineers, etc. It was in 1960 that all training was amalgamated under one roof at the
Hotel Midway House, Karachi. The Centre was moved to its present premises in
October 1975.
Specialist instructors are assigned at the Centre for imparting rigorous training to those
who fly, and to those who service and maintain various types of aircraft ( B-747-200,
A-310, A-300, B-737, F-27, Twin Otter, B-777). The training aids and equipment used


                                           96

are the latest. The methods of knowledge and skill transfer, adopted at the
PIA Training Centre, are varied all pragmatic and useful. Classroom lectures are
augmented by group discussion, observations, experiments, simulations, case studies,
etc. Study tours to a number of PIA facilities are regularly conducted and seminars on
topics of general interest are frequently convened.
Training facilities available within the airline also include flight simulators which are
used
in the basic and recurrent of pilots and other operational crew. The equipment here
includes: a cabin service procedures trainer, a Boeing 707 - 340 Flight Simulator,
A-300-B4 Flight Simulator, and 747-200 Flight Simulator and A-310 Video &
Audio
Computer Based Instructions ( VACBI ) Systems. These are largely supplemented with
apprentice workshops and laboratories for new entrants.
During the past, for many years the PIA Training Centre has also been instrumental in
rendering training to a large number of pilots, engineers, flight stewards/stewardesses,
traffic and sales personnel from over 30 airlines and associated agencies worldwide,
mostly from Asian and African countries.

CHAPTER 10

AEROASIA
The airline was established in 1993 and started operations on 4 May 1993. It is wholly
owned by the Regal Group of companies, who are also based mainly in Karachi and
Yorkshire, but have many businesses around Pakistan, America, and United Kingdom.

The airline operated a fleet of three to five Yakovlev YAK-42D on main trunk routes in
Pakistan. These were mainly Karachi, Islamabad and Lahore. However as demand rose
through the years the airline replaced its YAK-42Ds with Boeing 737-200Adv and DC-
9s. The airline also introduced a more modern livery instead of having colour of past
operatos of the aircraft on its fuselage. A large "Aero Asia" was added to the front
fuselage in bold red colour with the airline logo in between the words and on the tail.

On July 22, 2005 the airline was given the go ahead by the Ministry of Defense and Civil
Aviation Authority (CAA) for up to twelve flights to Birmingham, London and
Manchester. Similarly, Aero Asia has also been permitted to initiate flights to Singapore-
Oslo-Copenhagen and Bahrain. Aero Asia will soon be commencing flight services to
Manchester, London and Birmingham and will shortly induct the latest Boeing and
Airbus aircraft into its fleet, however the airline has shown no sign of this venture.

During the start of 2006, Aero Asia and Askari Bank MasterCard announced their
strategic alliance to offer their card members special discounts. A MOU was signed in
this regard by Mr. Kalim ur Rehman – President & CEO Askari Commercial Bank Ltd.
& Mr. Abdul Rauf Tabani – Vice Chairman Aero Asia.

On May 22, 2006 The Civil Aviation Authority stopped all Aero Asia flights as it owed
millions of Rupees to the CAA. The managements of the airline were pre-informed about
the CAA decision and the ban would remain imposed till further orders by the aviation
regulators.

On June 12th, 2006 UK-based Regal Group ([1]) has acquired Aero Asia from its original
owners Tabani Group ([2]).

Capt. Christopher Stricklin ejected from his USAF Thunderbird aircraft at an airshow at
Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho, on September 14, 2003. While making a dive,
Strickilin realized he could not pull up in time and ejected after aiming it at a safe place.
Stricklin was not injured.

An aviation accident is an incident on board an aircraft causing injury or death to one or
more persons. The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board definition of an aviation
accident is as follows:

       An occurrence associated with the operation of an aircraft which takes place
       between the time any person boards the aircraft with the intention of flight and all
       such persons have disembarked, and in which any person suffers death or serious
       injury, or in which the aircraft receives substantial damage.

An aviation incident is an occurrence other than an accident, associated with the
operation of an aircraft, which affects or could affect the safety of operations.

Other countries adopt a similar approach, although there are minor variations, such as to
the extent of aviation-related operations on the ground, covered, as well as with respect to
the thresholds beyond which an injury is considered serious or the damage is considered
substantial. A hull-loss accident is one where the damage to the plane is such that it must
be written off, or in which the plane is totally destroyed.

Trivia
      The popularity of the 737 can be traced in large part to its use by Southwest
       Airlines, who has been a launch customer on the -300, -500, and -700 variants,
       and use no other aircraft type.
      The first Boeing 737s were nicknamed, "The Baby Boeing" because it looked like
       a baby 707 to many pilots.
      The nickname of the 737 at United Airlines is "Guppy".


                                            119
PAKISTAN INTERNATIONAL AIRLINE


     Engines on the 737 Classic series (300,400,500) do not have circular inlets, as
      most aircraft do. Engineers needed additional space to locate equipment on the
      more powerful engines, but because the 737 sits lower to the ground than most
      aircraft, the enlarged engine would sit too close to the ground. Instead, the
      engineers placed equipment on the engine's sides, giving the engine a pronounced
      triangular shape. Boeing and CFM International, the engine manufacturer, claim
      that the triangular shape actually yields slightly improved performance.
     The 737 uses the same basic fuselage as the 707, 727 and 757.
     Most 737 cockpits are equipped with "eyebrow windows" positioned above the
      main glareshield. Eyebrow windows were a feature of the original 707. They
      allowed for greater visibility in turns, and offered better sky views if navigating
      by stars. With modern avionics, they became redundant, and many pilots actually
      placed newspapers or other objects in them to block out sun glare. They were
      eliminated from the 737 cockpit design in 2004.
     The fuselage of the 737 can actually fit inside the engine nacelle of the GE90-
      115B turbo-fan jet engine. The GE90-115B is used to power the Boeing 777-
      200LR and 777-300ER.
     The 737 has no main landing gear doors. The main landing gear (under the wings
      at mid-cabin), rotate into wells in the plane's belly, and seals activate to
      aerodynamically smooth (or "fair") the wheels in the wells. The sides of the tires
      are exposed to the air in flight. When observing a 737 take off, or at low altitude,
      the dark circles of the tires can be plainly seen. Boeing claims that this design
      saves weight and reduces complexity.
     With the number of 737s in use, it is estimated that one 737 takes-off every 5
      seconds somewhere in the world.
     737s are not equipped with fuel dump systems. In the event of an emergency, they
      either circle to burn-off fuel (weight), or land overweight, depending upon the
      nature of the emergency.

CHAPTER 12


                        SUMMARY REPORT
The directors of Pakistan international Airlines Corporation take pleasure to present their
report.
Year 2001, turned out to be the most difficult year the airline industry has ever
experienced. It was a disastrous year for the global airline business. Never before have
the industry conditions changed so fast and so fundamentally for the worse. The total
losses in the airline industry were enormous and scores of employees have lost their jobs
world wide as the airlines struggle to survive the crisis. The aftermath of the September
11 incident in the USA and the subsequent acts of terrorism have dramatically
strengthened the decline. It was not until late December 2001 that some signs of recovery
in aviation could be detected. While the events of September 11 had an immediate impact
on the global airline industry, it was the subsequent bankruptcies of such well known
names as Ansett, Sabena and Swiss Air that had a further adverse effect. Bankruptcies of
this nature have made commercial banks cautious and they are hesitant to do business as
usual. In the immediate aftermath of the September 11 incident international markets
could not be predicted and although the aviation world now appears to be recovering
slowly, the industry has yet to regain its past status. The dramatic traffic collapse is
indicative in the graph given below. All major passenger markets were down 20-30%
almost at a stroke.
PIA was faced with multifarious problems, internal as well as external. The situation was
addressed comprehensively by formulating a business plan which was then approved by
the Government. The plan was meticulously implemented and today the national carrier
has attained a reasonable level of profitability as a turnaround strategy and cost-saving
measure, PIA has also adopted a tactic to eliminate non-productive positioning flights as
well arresting excessive capacity. The passenger seat factor improved to 66.5% over
65.6% last year. Particularly during the Second half of 2001, the seat factor touched
69.9% as against 63.8% in the first half.
On the other hand, rigorous efforts were made to enhance cargo business through
increased capacity and better utilization on all routes specially on the prime long-haul
sectors. The creation of hub at UK also helped. During the year, the Cargo uplift was
enhanced by 3.75% as Compared to last year. The Cargo load factors 2001 stood at
55.4% in comparison to the corresponding period of the previous year which was
49.04%. Overall RFTKs (Revenue Freight Tonne Kilometers) increased by 13.5% over
2000.

YEAR UNDER REVIEW

The Financial results for the 2005 present a significant and impressive turnaround in the
airlines fortunes. The operating revenues of Rs. 43.6 Billion increased by Rs. 4.4billion
from Rs. 39.2 billion last year an increase of 11.2%. there is an after tax loss of Rs. 2.2
Billion last year. This gradual improvement has been achieved as a result of various



                                           123
PAKISTAN INTERNATIONAL AIRLINE


measures initiated after June 2005, despite the fact that the global airline industry has
been passing through dire straits.
To enhance revenue following tactics were adopted:
    Fare increase for improved yields
    Redeployment of capacity in high yield markets
    Domestic fares linked to fuel prices
    Strict reservation monitoring to reduced no- shows
    Penalties on agents not following reservation procedures
    Ticking time limitation imposed
    Charges on void tickets
    Incentives to productive agents
    Withdrawal of stocks from non performing agents
Measures enforced to achieve cost savings in different areas include:

      Elimination of non-productive positioning flights
      Flight/duty time limitations increased
      Reduction in slip allowance rated
      Revised operating patterns for reduced slip points
      Flight time excluded from slip hours
      Moe economical crew hotels
      Reduction in employees leave
      Non-payment for extended duty to engineering personnel
      Right –sizing at foreign stations
Airline reported a profit of Rs.403 million for six month ended December 31.2005 as
against the target of break even level.
There was no default on long term loan borrowings.
All fuel bills and payments towards sales tax are up to date.
Also engineering supplies are normal as the payments are current with engineering
vendors.
By the grace of God, we were able to retire loans on three A310 Aircraft and they have
now come under the ownership of the airline.
The vision and constant monitoring by management enabled the airline to tackle these
multifarious problems and emerge successful when almost all others were going down.
This was also made possible without resorting to massive layoffs as done by other
airlines because of the stringent cost-cutting measures.
To meet immediate cash flow requirement the corporation obtained a short-term bridge
financing of Rs. 4.73 billion in October 2005 through local Nationalized Commercial
Banks. In addition to the above, the corporation has restructured its redeemable capital
debts of Rs. 5.9 billion. The mark-up on these financing is State Banks of Pakistan
discounting rate plus 2%. These facilities are backed by GOP guarantees and secured by
way of hypothecation of certain current assets. The financing cost will be reimbursed by
GOP, convertible into equity during the tenor of the facility, up to the extent of
accumulated losses of the Corporation. The airline will be retiring the Citibank loan of
US $ 54 billion against Saudi Arabia and UAE receivables by the middle of June 2006.

In order to liquidate its overdue liabilities the Corporation as agreed with Gop is in the
process of raising long-term loans of Rs. 20.5 billion through Term Finance Certificates
(TFCs). All these steps will have a positive impact on the corporation’s future
profitability, its status of a “ Going Concern” and upgrading its equity to an elevated
position.
The Financial results for 2005 give an indication that as a result of various measures
initiated after June 2005, the decline has been controlled. As against a pre tax loss of Rs.
6.1 billion in 2004 the pretax loss of 2003 has been brought down to Rs. 1.8 billion. The
corporation has been able to generate a pre tax profit of Rs. 403 million during the second
half of the year in comparison with a pre tax loss of Rs. 2,285 million in the first half of
the year. I am pleased to state that as per un audited financial results for January March
2002 quarter, the Corporation has achieved a pre tax profit of Rs. 1.10 billion, thus
reducing accumulated losses of Rs. 12.86 billion to Rs11.82 billion. The stock market of
the country has also responded in a positive tone and the Rs. 10 shares has now been
traded at Rs. 7.40, which in 2001 had touched down to Rs.2.45
