Weren't they doing well? Expanding sectors and adding more planes? Whatever happened.

Estimates suggest that jobs of at least a 100 staffers could be uncertain at a time when SAI is reevaluating strategy, reducing destinations and its fleet size.

According to reliable source, today the mother of Chairman and CEO Shaheen Air arrived at airline's Head Office and ordered not to terminate anyone. The airline owners will inject capital into the airline.

So, it's a big sigh of relief for all members of Shaheen Air family.

According to reliable source, today the mother of Chairman and CEO Shaheen Air has taken charge of the airline.

No employee to be terminated. Reduction in salaries of high ranking staff. Salaries of low ranking staff not to be reduced.
