Birth of a Nation, Birth of an Airline
Air transport has probably never been more important to the development of a new nation than in the case of Pakistan. In June 1946, when Pakistan was still in the offing, Mr. Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the Founder of the upcoming nation, instructed Mr. M.A. Ispahani, a leading industrialist, to set up a national airline, on a priority basis. With his singular vision and foresight, Mr. Jinnah realized that with the formation of the two wings of Pakistan, separated by 1100 miles, a swift and efficient mode of transport was imperative Orient Airways Takes to the Skies On 23rd October 1946, a new airline was born. Initially registered as a pilot project in Calcutta, Orient Airways Ltd. had at its helm Mr. M.A. Ispahani as Chairman and Air Vice Marshal O.K. Carter as General Manager. The new carrier's base remained in Calcutta and an operating license was obtained in May 1947.Four Douglas DC-3s were purchased from Tempo of Texas in February 1947 and operations commenced on 4th June 1947.

The designated route for Orient Airways was CalcuttaAkyab-Rangoon, which also happened to be the first post-war international sector to be flown by an airline registered in India. Within two months of Orient Airways' operational beginnings,

Pakistan was born. The birth of a new nation generated one of the largest transfers of population in the history of mankind.

Orient Airways, along with the help of BOAC aircraft which had been chartered by the Government of Pakistan, started relief operations and transportation of people between Delhi and Karachi, the two capitals. Subsequently, Orient Airways transferred its base to Pakistan and established a vital link between Karachi and Dacca, the two capitals of the two wings of Pakistan. With a skeleton fleet of just two DC-3s, three crew members, and twelve mechanics, Orient Airways launched its scheduled operations. The initial routes were Karachi-Lahore-Peshawar, Karachi-Quetta-Lahore and Karachi-Delhi Calcutta-Dacca. By the end of 1949, Orient Airways had acquired 10 DC-3s and 3 Convair 240s which were operated on these routes. In 1950, it had become increasingly apparent that additional capacity would have to be inducted to cater to the growing needs of the sub-continent.

A New National Flag Carrier for Pakistan Orient Airways was a privately owned company, with limited capital and resources. It could not be expected to grow and expand independently. It was then that the Government of Pakistan decided to form a stateowned airline and invited Orient Airways to merge with it. The outcome of the merger was the birth of a new airline, named Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) on 11 March, 1955.

In activities, and

addition Orient


transport had and

Airways facilities

established the nucleus of overhaul maintenance acquired trained pilots, engineers and technicians, these measures proved to be a great asset for PIA during its teething phase. PIA’s First International Service The year 1955 also marked the inauguration of the fledgling airline's first scheduled international service to the glittering, glitzy capital city of London, via Cairo and Rome. Initially, there was much criticism, as the public could not comprehend or justify the need to operate an international route when, in their opinion, other projects vital for a developing country should have been given a higher priority. However, PIA's focus was, and continues to be, to serve the Pakistani community at large. The provision of transportation to expatriates has remained one of the foremost priorities of the national airline. Moreover, PIA earned substantial foreign exchange through international services, which it invested in the purchase of aircraft and spare parts, as fleet expansion was a grave necessity for the airline

New Planes, New Directions, New Management In 1956, orders were placed for two Super Constellations and five Viscounts which were to be delivered in 1959. At this juncture, PIA possessed a small fleet which comprised of Convairs, Viscounts, Super Constellations and DC-3s.

While Mr. M.A. Ispahani was the first Chairman of the new dynamic airline; it was the first Managing Director of PIA, Mr. Zafar-ul-Ahsan, who in his 4 year tenure, got the ball truly rolling and set the shape of things to come. The PIA Head Office building at Karachi Airport, which houses all the major departments of the airline, was the brain-child of Mr. Zafar-ul- Ahsan. In fact, on his departure from the airline, the employees presented him with a silver replica of the building with the caption, "The House You Built".

In 1959, the Government of Pakistan

appointed Air

Commodore Nur Khan as the Managing Director of PIA. With his visionary leadership, PIA 'took off' and within a short span of 6 years, gained the stature and status of one of the world's frontline carriers. In aviation circles, this period has often been referred to as the "golden years of PIA".

Development, expansion, and growth were keywords that the new management was committed to. In March 1960, PIA launched its first Boeing 707 jet service on the London-KarachiDacca, route which later proved to be very successful. This trailblazing accomplishment resulted in PIA becoming the first Asian Airline to operate a jet aircraft, setting trends for the future. In 1961, the airline took on the mammoth task of initiating a crossAtlantic service from Karachi to New York. By this time, PIA had placed orders for more new aircraft, which included Fokker F-27s, Boeing 720Bs and Sikorsky helicopters. Helicopter services in East Pakistan had gained momentum by 1962 and expanded to include Sylhet, Chittagong, Dacca, Comilla and Ishurdi. PIA's helicopter services carried over 70,000 passengers during the first year of operation. At the time, it was regarded as a stellar operation, equal to any other in the world. Unfortunately, due to two mishaps, the service was discontinued in 1966.

Historic Firsts and Unbroken Records In 1962, finding the upper winds forecast favorable, PIA set out to break the record for the fastest flight between London and Karachi. With representatives of FAI (Federation Aeronautique International) on board to monitor the official timings, PIA completed the flight in 6 hours, 43 minutes, 51 seconds, a record which remains unbroken to this day.

In 1964, PIA achieved another historic first, regarded as a major milestones in the chequered history of the airline. On 29th

April, 1964, with a Boeing 720B, PIA earned the distinction of becoming the first airline from a non-communist country to fly into the People’s Republic of China. PIA's first service to China was from Karachi to Shanghai via Canton. In 1964-65, PIA expanded its fleet further with the addition of a fourth Boeing 720B and two Fokker F-27s. Serious development had become a reality and the PIA team continued to move ahead with ambitious plans and goals for the national flag carrier.

A collective pride and a joyous buoyancy was pervasive within the PIA family. Riding high on the crest of success, PIA became a household name in Pakistan in the mid sixties. The war between India and Pakistan, during 1965, further tested the national airline. PIA played a major role in providing logistical support to the Armed Forces by operating special flights using Boeings, Super Constellations, and Viscounts. The Founder of the Nation, Mr. Jinnah had predicted that the Pakistan Air force would need the support of a civil airline in special circumstances, and this came into evidence during the war.

In 1966, a system of feeder services linking eight new points in West Pakistan was introduced. By this time, the airline's Viscounts were proving inadequate owing to traffic growth, and had to be replaced by Tridents. The airline continued up the growth curve, receiving two Fokker F-27s, two Boeing 707s and one Trident in the following year

Style, Glamour, and Charisma Around this time, the airline saw a change in the top slot. Air Vice Marshal, Asghar Khan took over the reigns of PIA for a tenure of 3 years. A number of highpoints are attributed to this period. The most colorful, if not the most significant, occurrence for PIA was the introduction of a new airhostesses' uniform designed by none other than the renowned French designer, Pierre Cardin. Taking the aviation world by storm, this move, more than any other single factor, imprinted PIA's name on the international market. The uniforms were an instant hit, both at home and abroad. The Pursuit of Excellence Through Technology and Quality Control Not content with a number of historic firsts under its belt, PIA made history yet again, by installing Pakistan's first computer, an IBM1401, in 1967. PIA's first Engine Overhaul Shop, located near the Head Office building, was also completed and commissioned around this time. The Ground Training School (GTS) now known as the PIA Training Centre, was first conceived and developed during 1961-62. Interestingly, training was initially imparted in the T-shaped building which has now become the PIA Dispensary, close to the Head Office building.

Besides visible development and growth in traffic and revenues in the sixties, PIA added additional destinations, new equipment, and cutting-edge technology to support its ever expanding operations. A new Jet Hangar for Boeings with a supporting airframe overhaul shop was completed and commissioned in 1968.

In 1970, PIA set up its own Flight Kitchen in Karachi, which caters, even today, to the national airline as well as other carriers. Over the years, with the airline's expansion and increased capacity, the need for a second Flight Kitchen became imperative.

Ushering In a New Era of Growth and Development PIA heralded the nineties by donning a bright new corporate identity. Old-timers may remember the flutter that the earlier green and gold livery had created when it was first introduced in 1974. However, in keeping with the changing times, PIA introduced a smart, sporty 90's look. The familiar PIA green was reinforced with moss green and pale blue stripes were incorporated into the new corporate identity. The stripes, a universal symbol of sport, highlighted PIA's active participation and sponsorship of a diverse range of national games. PIA's players have always been at the forefront of Pakistani Cricket, Hockey,

Squash, Football, Chess, Bridge, Polo and Table-Tennis teams. The nineties also saw the expansion of PIA's massive Haj and Umrah operations to Pakistan's smaller cities, in addition to the major cities of Islamabad, Peshawar, Lahore, Quetta and Karachi.

PIA's growth continues unabated and the airline now operates globally, covering the entire domestic landscape and international destinations spread over 4 continents. Impressive statistics for a comparatively young airline. Since its inception in 1955, PIA has indeed, come a long way.

THE PIA TRAINING CENTRE The PIA raining center at Karachi is possible the only airline training establishment where comprehensive instruction in all major field is given under one roof. PIA has been training its pilots, mechanics, technicians, traffic / sales staff and cabin crew since 1956, but it wasn’t until 1960 that all training facilities were amalgamated at one centralized place and expended to train personnel in all fields of the airline. In October 1975, the training center moved to its new three stories specious premises near the Head Office where it has been able to add more attaching aids. Training facilities available within the airline also include flight Simulators for basic and recurrent training of pilots and other operational crew. In 1992, PIA introduced computer based training (CBT) facility; containing courses are for specific aircraft for training its engineering cabin and cockpit crew. Courses are conducted according to the requirements of the industry and the standards laid down by the civil aviation authority (CAA) of the United States and the international Civil aviation organization (ICAO) al courses are also approved by the Civil Aviation Authority of Pakistan. Deferent courses and training facilities are also offered to public and private sector organization and individuals within Pakistan. Basic and advanced raining facilities are also provided to foreign carriers, and courses in specialized fields are conducted at the center as well as location abroad. Over 40 airlines from Asia, Africa and Europe have used their facilities for the training of their pilots, maintenance engineers and other disciplines. The total number of such trainees exceeds 6,000. Training is also being conducted for African of scholarships granted by the ministry of foreign affairs, Government of Pakistan. In 1994, PIA training center introduced advanced course in Quality management TQM and ISO-9000 certification. It is

planned to develop PTC to receive an ISO-9000 certification in the next one-year. PIA training center was first selected to conduct civil air transport course for developing countries on behalf of government of Pakistan in collaboration with Japan international co-operation agency (JICA) in 1988. PIA has so far conducted eight such courses, in which senior airline and civil aviation officials of 30 countries have participated. In April, 1995 PIA and JICA concluded an agreement to conduct another five such courses in the field of civil air transport management.

Asset Turn Over Ratio
0.65 ratio 0.6 0.55 0.5 2009 years 2008

Interpretation This ratio is decreasing because of inefficiency of corporation in utilizing its resources well .corporations main assets are its plains air ports buildings& hotel .if we take an example of air port Peshawar air port remains closed because of terrorist attack for long duration and also few air ports are built on political basis which are not yielding as required.

2008 88863.26/115123.49 0.77

Interpretation Fixed asset turn over ratio is also not showing healthy trend as corporation is not utilizing its recourses well many of its air ports &other assets are built on political basis that’s why they are not better source of


revenue but proving them selves as a burden on corporation s ability to produce profit.

Debt to Asset Ratio = total debts/total assets 2009 2008 7978187/160013178 0.498 5757849/139669867 0.0412

debt to asset ratio
0.06 ratio 0.04 0.02 0 2009 year 2008

Interpretation This ratio shows that corporation is acquiring more debts on their asset which is not healthy sign as this trend can lead an

organization to be washed out of the seen. This is all because of Losses, Corporation facing that’s why they are acquiring more debts to to cover their expense and also to pay out borrowing installments.

Interpretation In common size analysis of profit & loss account we take revenue as denominator. Profit &loss account Shows Company paid a lot in 2008 in the form of fuel expense as fuel prices were rising in the whole world devaluation of currency is also an important aspect in this regard. In 2009 gross profit figures were high as company generate more revenue and minimizes its expenses although administration expenses rises because of the intake of sacked employee’s again re losses of 2009 are very much less than 2008 but not enough to put corporation in better condition.

• •

Employees are not satisfied about the Promotion procedure. PIA doesn’t have a good marketing strategy for certain international routes where PIA is facing financial losses. PIA is operating with Old aged fleet which is causing financial burden on PIA because of their highest operating cost .

• PIA have highest employee ratio to per airplane. Which is a huge financial burden on PIA. Suggestions 1. PIA should adopt transparent policy that employees should be promoted on merit basis. And Chairman of PIA should be appointed from with in the organization. Union should support it, it will motivate the employees and PIA will grow in profit. 2. PIA should adopt good marketing policies so that it will bring higher profit and maximum utilization of its available

resources, Business sector should be attracted to operate at full potential. 3. PIA should upgrade its fleet as it’s causing the airline higher operating cost and PIA is incurring loss .PIA should purchase new Airplane with twin engines these will reduce the operating cost of PIA. 4. Airline should focus on the customer’s satisfaction, refund process should be quick so that customer remains loyal to brand. 5. 6. 7. PIA should not induct new employees till the time they are needed . PIA should give bonus to the industrious and competent employees. There should be control on the increase of fares, as mediocre are in majority in Pakistan, and it is highly difficult for to even think about the air traveling. Management should think over it and at least they can start a new packaged flight twice a week having 50% fares. 8. Unnecessary losses. 10. 11. There should be clear and even distribution of work and only qualified person should be appointed on jobs. There should be improved service standards and that should focus on quality. facilities provided to the Government Department should be discouraged as it causes financial

In conclusion we can say that the losses to pia are mainly because of bad governance, another mian reason is the air ports which were developed on political basis. Employs are not motivated and even customers are not satisfied. PIA can achieve its lost glory if some serious efforts from management are done.
