There is a lot of potential in the aviation industry and the business plan once approved will benefit PIA and positive changes will be witnessed within the next 2- 3 years. PIA will increase its fleet strength to 50 aircraft by 2019 which is part of the business plan.

Regarding New York route closure, Sardar Mehtab Ahmed said that in principle,  a decision has been made to temporarily suspend the US operation.  However,  not implemented as yet.  He also dispelled the rumors regarding downsizing in PIA but indiscipline and complacency will not be tolerated .
