Karachi, October 18, 2014 -
Nasser N.S. Jaffer has been nominated as the new Chairman of Pakistan International Airlines Corporation (PIAC) by the Prime Minister of Pakistan.

Mr. Jaffer is a seasoned and outstanding businessman and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Jaffer Brothers (Private) Limited (JBL) and Chairman of Jaffer Group of Companies.

Under his command, it is hoped that new dynamism will be infused in PIA, the country’s flagship air carrier, and it will take-off towards a new phase of expansion, growth and customer satisfaction.

“I am grateful on being given stewardship of the national flag carrier and I am sure I will endeavour to transform PIA into a profitable and feasible organisation again through a practical business strategy,” he said.

As an experienced business leader with in-depth knowledge and insights of management processes, he is expected to provide leadership in the achievement of PIA’s short and long-term goals. He is also expected to translate his vigour into the organization’s services as its strongest element.

It is commendable that the new PIA Chairman will not be taking any salary nor any fringe benefits from the airline and will dedicate his time, experience and knowledge as his contribution to the success of Pakistan and PIA.

“PIA has always been a source of pride and prestige both for the people of Pakistan as well its employees. It is a part of the national heritage and the country’s future vision. I am sure I will be able to add value to the viable growth of this great airline,” he commented.

Earlier, Mr. Jaffer served on the Board of PIA from July 3, 2013 to August 01, 2013. He is at present Chairman of PIA Board’s Information Technology Steering Committee as well as member of PIA Board’s Audit Committee and Fleet Management Committee.
