According to the national carrier, travellers would be allowed 45 kilogrammes of luggage in economy class and 55 kilogrammes in executive economy class. It went on to say, “It would be the highest free luggage allowance granted to PIA travelers.”

Following the approval, PIA has commenced planning for direct flights to Australia, which will cut travel time to and from the country by almost a third.

Because there are no direct flights between Pakistan and Australia, journey time is generally more than 24 hours with stopovers, which extends passenger travel time.

PIA CEO Air Marshal Arshad Malik urged marketing and frontline PIA personnel to serve passengers in their best interests while examining the finalization of flight operations.

Furthermore, after the aviation industry’s COVID-19 restrictions were lifted, the national airline has plans to extend its network. It just launched flights from Karachi and Lahore to Baku.
