Gulf Nations Eye Purchase of Pakistan’s National Carrier, PIA


Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar have emerged as prospective purchasers for Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), displaying keen interest in acquiring the country’s flagship carrier.

This development unfolds against the backdrop of the Pakistani government’s push to privatize PIA as part of its efforts to tackle financial challenges.

Government officials have reportedly engaged in discussions with top-level representatives from these Gulf nations, providing them with comprehensive briefings on the potential acquisition.

Insider sources disclose an escalation in communication between authorities from the Gulf region and the Pakistani government regarding the prospective acquisition of PIA.

Aviation industry insiders suggest that investors hailing from the Gulf have entered into talks with senior officials regarding the acquisition of PIA. These discussions purportedly included detailed briefings for representatives from the UAE, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia.

Additional sources indicate that the bidding process for PIA’s sale is already in progress, with indications pointing towards the highest bidder securing ownership of the airline.
