PIA is one of the oldest airlines in the country, originally
established in 1946 as "Orient Airways", and after the formation of Pakistan in
1955 it was formally started as Pakistan International Airlines (PIA). Despite
being Pakistan's oldest airline, PIA's service and maintenance system was
severely neglected. Compared to other airlines in the world, Pakistan
International Airlines (PIA) is not performing as well as it should be.
Emirates Airlines was launched in 1985. The important aspect is that Emirates
Airlines was started with two aircraft, pilot and crew of Pakistan Airlines PIA.
And now the situation is that Emirates is not only the largest airline in the
Middle East but also considered reliable all over the world due to its excellent
facilities. Emirates Airlines currently has 300 of the best aircraft operating
in 159 airports around the world. Emirates Airlines operates 3,600 flights a
week, but to date the airline has not had an accident in which precious human
lives have been lost, except for a minor accident that occurred in August 2016.
The accident happened while a passenger plane coming from India was trying to
land at Dubai Airport. The plane caught fire but no one was killed in the crash.
Compared to Emirates, PIA operates about 700 flights a week on 56 domestic and
international routes. Not only that, but the PIA also has a history of plane
crashes with massive loss of life. The main task of the Civil Aviation Authority
is not only to bring about rapid and modern change in aviation but also to make
its importance known globally, however the frequent crashes of PIA planes are
raising many questions. Given this tragic history of accidents, while there is a
need to improve aircraft maintenance procedures in Pakistan, it is also
important to address the shortcomings in airport control procedures and systems,
as well as the surgery of the national airline. PIA officials should also act
responsibly and professionally, not only to make the airline a profitable
company and brand for the world, but also to make it a popular airline in the
