The Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority has finally announced the rankings of Airlines in Pakistan on the basis of their in-depth CAA report. There have been significant changes in rankings compared to previous years as PIA has actually fallen down in the rankings and the Airline now holds the 5th position despite being the National Airline of Pakistan.
Top Airlines according to CAA Report
The rankings are based on many factors as the report has taken into account the punctuality of flights, their arrivals and departures, operating stability and track record of consistent flights. The report covers the metrics and performance of the Airlines from January to June this year which provides the latest and crystal clear picture of their performances. There are numerous other ranking metrics for these results as well. According to the CAA report, the following rankings are observed.
- Fly Jinnah
- Air Sial
- Air Blue
- Serene Air
In a shocking turn of events, Pakistan International Airlines has drastically fallen in the ranks due to poor flight timings, punctuality, and operating stabilities. According to the CAA’s report, PIA’s domestic departure ratio has now fallen to a mere 58% which is not good compared to private Airlines operating in Pakistan.
Fall of PIA
In 2023, PIA did not perform as well as it should’ve and the performance of the Airline went downhill as it could not perform due to various operating difficulties alongside technical difficulties. This has marked a dark age for PIA as it has stumbled to 5th place in rankings and private airlines have now overtaken it.
A private Airline, Fly Jinnah has taken the country by storm as it has performed remarkably well with a departure ratio of 87.9%. Air Sial has secured the second position as it also had an impressive departure ratio of 86.8%. Air blue ranked third in the rankings with a departure ratio of 78% while Serene Air was ranked fourth with a departure ratio of 62%.
