PIA to import new state-of-the-art flight operations control from Turkey after PK-8303 crash

Because of safety concerns, the state-owned airline was previously banned by the European Union in 2007.

The PK-8303 plane crash has, once again, brought the operational and administrative issues of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) under discussion. The horrific incident is being called the \\’worst in Pakistan\\’s aviation history\\’.

PIA was ranked the world’s 3rd Worst Airline in the 5th annual airline rankings published by AirHelp in 2018. Moreover, the PIA secured the 52nd position out of 56 major airlines in safety rankings between 1985-1999, and the 53rd out of 56 during the years 2000-2014. 

Because of safety concerns, the state-owned airline was previously banned by the European Union in 2007.

The investigation of the recent plane crash is still underway. Although the aviation authorities have blamed the pilot for the incident, it still cannot be established if it was his fault or the plane’s deplorable condition was responsible for the mishap.

Turkey-based IT company to improve PIA

To avoid such incidents in the future, the state-run airline has issued a press release that stated PIA’s decision to import a state-of-the-art technology air flight operations system. According to the details, a Turkey-based IT company would provide the services to Pakistan.

According to the airline, the system would improve the PIA’s dwindling safety standards and processes. It would also increase PIA’s capacity to monitor departing and arriving flights.

The International Civil Aviation has approved this new system with hopes of breaking the unfortunate cycle of PIA’s performance over the past few decades.
