In August 2014 PIA successfully acquired approvals under ANO 145 and ANO 147 from Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to become the only Pakistani airline in South Asia to achieve both high aviation standards.

In a simple ceremony Director General Civil Aviation Authority Air Marshal (Retd.) Muhammad Yousaf gave ANO certificates to Managing Director PIA Shahnawaz Rehman.

The program was initiated by South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) countries under the South Asia Regional Initiative (SARI) program in the year 2008. The primary objective of the program was to harmonize aviation regulations in all member states and align the same with European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) standards. CAA teams performed extensive audits of PIA Engineering and Maintenance facilities and PIA Training Centre (PTC) before issuance of Air Navigation Orders ANO 145 and ANO 147
