INTRODUCTION

After a short period of independence, Pakistan decided in 1951 that it needed a


national flag carrier airline; the government of the country accordingly established
Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) in this role, and on 25 May ordered three
examples of the Lockheed L-1049C Super Constellation four-engined airliner
as the new operator's initial equipment. PIA flew its first service with the Super
Constellation on 07 June 1954 on the route linking Karachi and Dacca (now
Dhaka), which were the main cities of the country's western and eastern halves,
of which the later is now Bangladesh. On 1 February 1955 the airline flew its first
international service, between Karachi and London via Cairo.
On 11 March 1955 PIA formally took over the assets and routes of another
Pakistani operator, Orient Airways, which had in effect been part of PIA since
October 1953.The consolidation of the two airlines meant that PIA could enlarge
its domestic network with 11 Douglas DC-3 and two Convair CV-240 aircraft,
which left the Super Constellation machines wholly free for international services.

Modernization of the fleet used for domestic and regional operations was now a
matter of high priority, and in May 1956 the airline placed an order for three
examples of the Vickers Viscount 815 four-turboprop airliner, the first of which
was accepted in the UK on 2 January 1959 for a debut in revenue earning
service on the service linking Karachi and Delhi on 31 January 1959. Further
enhancement came in 1961 with debut of the Fokker F-27 Friendship twin-
turboprop type, of which the first was received on 3 January 1961.The availability
of the F-27 for operation on the routes linking the major Pakistani cities freed the
DC-3 fleet for use on new services to the remoter parts of East Pakistan.

PIA was the first Asian airline with pure-jet aircraft, in the form of a Boeing 707-
321 machine leased from Pan American World Airways for use from 7 March
1960 on the London service that was extended to New York on 5 May 1961.On
21 December 1961 PIA began to receive its own jet aircraft when it took delivery
of the first of three Boeing 720-040B aircraft, whose availability permitted the
operator to enlarge its international route network.

In 1963 PIA called off its New York service, but on 29 April 1964 became the first
non-communist airline to operate a service to the Chinese city of Shanghai. A
notable feature of PIA's domestic routes in East Pakistan for some time was the
helicopter services operated with Sikorsky S-61N's. PIA ordered four examples
of the Hawker Siddeley HS.121 Trident 1E to replace Vickers Viscount
815s.First of these four Trident aircraft was accepted on 1 March 1966.The
Trident aircraft were later sold to the Civil Aviation Administration of China in
1970.In 1971 East Pakistan secured its independence as Bangladesh, and PIA
ceased operations to that country. The airline's fleet and network were both
reduced, but the service to New York was resumed in 1972.
The first wide-body airliner used by PIA was the McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30
three-turbofan type, which the airline first received on 1 March 1974.A pair of
Boeing 747-282B four-turbofan aircraft (initially leased from TAP Air Portugal)
followed in April 1976, and on 3 March 1980 the airline accepted its first Airbus
A300B4-203 two-turbofan type. In 1985 PIA became the first Asian operator of
Boeing 737-300 aircraft, a total of six Boeing 737-300s were ordered to replace
aging Boeing 720B aircraft. PIA received first of its six Airbus A310-308 aircraft
on 25 June 1991 from Airbus Industrie.

In the first half of the year1999, PIA acquired five Boeing 747-367 (leased from
Cathay Pacific) for its European and North American destinations.
The A300, A310, and Boeing 747 are currently the mainstays of PIA's medium-
and long-haul operations, with feeder and local services provided by the Boeing
737-300 and Fokker F-27 Friendship.
Life has never been easy for PIA, as the flag carrier of a young and developing
nation which has had an eventul history to date, but it is a worthy ambassador for
Pakistan and its people.

Recommendation:

The company should open more international station to maximize the circle of its HR
department. The recruitment process can be improve that it is at current time by just
injecting more people in the employment department and changing the application
pattern or using the wed base selection system. Give more precise information in the
advertisement can also give the right people flow at the time of induction.

As PIA has its own training center called PTC (PIA training center), first it should
improve the training center by putting much of its training test on computers rather then
old paper system. Also to improve the structure and modernize the building its self. The
induction of more teachers is also necessary so that more courses could be done in a
short time.

Though PIA had started the development work it should remain constant so that
continuous improvement goes on for better quality.

PIA does gives many benefits to its employees and the employees who are permanent
enjoy more of the company’s benefits. The company should give same benefits to the
contractual employees also to give them motivation at work.
