CEO visits Ramp and Food services divisions

Karachi; March 26, 2017
- CEO PIA, Bernd Hildenbrand visited the Ramp Services and Food Services divisions of the airline here this afternoon.

Talking to senior PIA management on this occasion the CEO expressed the satisfaction that during the last one year PIA has added 24 new GSE which include AC vans, baggage belts, ambu-lifters and hi-lifters, while four Ground Power Units are on their way. In addition, renovation of old equipment is also being done using airline's indigenous resources.

During the visit he inspected the Ground Support Equipment (GSE) and passenger transport vehicles refurbished by PIA, using indigenous resources, saving millions to the airline.

He said an airline is not only the aircraft and ground equipment is its integral part but unfortunately PIA's current ground equipment is mostly over 25 years old and no investment was done for many years. That is why, he said, it is very important that all existing equipment is taken good care of so that it serves the airline well in the months and years to come.

The CEO was pleased to note that a lot of improvements have been brought about in the working of these divisions. He said work is being done in the right direction but there's still a long way to go.

Mr. Hildenbrand asked the management to ensure improved efficiency in their respective departments, particularly focusing on cleaning and maintenance of ground support equipment. He also visited different areas of maintenance facility.

The CEO particularly appreciated the steps taken in the Catering division during last one year to organize its work and to ensure cleanliness of premises and hygiene of food.
