Suspension of PIA flights averted albeit temporarily: partial dues paid to Saudi authorities

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has managed to avert suspension of its flights to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), by making a partial payment towards the outstanding land and parking charges, sources said. According to sources, the outstanding amount stood at SR443,160; however, it has not been confirmed as to what amount has actually been paid by the PIA management to rescue its operations.

The General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA) had issued a notice if outstanding payment was not paid by PIA by April 18, 2014 at 2pm, it would suspend PIA operations to KSA. Since a partial payment has been made, suspension has been withdrawn temporarily.
