having a image oI being the Pakistani International Airline who serves the Muslims to perIorm
the Religious Obligations that is serving Muslims and serving Pakistani`s. The largest Airline in

Budget:
The pricing is a bit high when you talk about travelling through PIA, The Size oI air bus is the
reason oI this and the load it will carry in each airline, The Early bird discount will be good way
Ior the customers who wish to travel at economical pricing. Instead oI delay booking decision.
