Pakistan International Airline CEO Arshad Malik Sunday inaugurated national carrier first ever engineering hanger which has been named after the former PIA boss Noor Khan, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

The new engineering hanger will treat and repair the PIA planes and from now onwards there is will be no need to carry the PIOA planes to Karachi.

The new facility will significantly reduce the cost of PIA

Arshad Malik said that PIA has been increasing its presence keeping an eye on the future challenges at New Islamabad Airport as most flight operation of PIA has now been shifting towards the north. 

He paid glowing tributes to the Noor Alam as PIA underwent extra ordinary staller performances during his era. 

Earlier, PIA CEO Arshad Malik inaugurated the installation of state-of-the-art Airbus A320 simulator at PIA's Simulator Complex at PTC Karachi. 

Pia spokesperson said, "The sim, the 1st of its kind in the region, will raise the training standards of 100s of Pak pilots and save valuable forex.”

The simulator would lead to safer training and cost savings for the local airlines, as they have to spend a significant amount of money on training their pilots overseas.
