Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) is set to increase its employees’ salaries by 10-20% at a meeting today at 2:30 pm, sources say.
This salary hike has been proposed by the Human Resources (HR) and Finance departments.
The hike in prices is set to be decided in an administrative summit today at 2:30 pm. Sources say that Pensions for retired employees are also set to be increased.
The salaries of employees in Group 1 positions, up to and including the General Manager position, at PIA are expected to be increased by 10-20%.
Earlier this month, PIA announced price reductions on multiple international routes following a decrease in fuel prices.
According to a spokesperson, the national flag carrier has announced a reduction in fares for Canada flights of 8 per cent, while fares for UAE and Gulf routes have been reduced by 15 per cent.
Similarly, fares for Saudi Arabia routes have been reduced by 10 per cent, the spokesperson added.
The new prices will come into effect from midnight today.
Following the federal government’s announcement of decreased fares for trains and Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flights, the development came about.
The minister announced a 10 per cent reduction in fares of economy class trains and domestic flights of the PIA. “The decision will come into force for 30 days from July 17,” he said.
