Earlier Sindh High Court (SHC) ruling declared that Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Arshad Malik is ineligible to perform the duties as the head of the flag carrier due to lack of aviation management experience and relevant educational background.
On 11th October 2018, Air Marshal Arshad Mahmood Malik assumed office as the Chairman of PIA. Later, on 2nd April 2019, he was appointed at the post of CEO of PIA.
The Twitter Community have come in favor of the axed PIA CEO as during his tenure the airline significantly improved its performance. Also ex Air force pilot if don’t have experience and qualification then who else have?
PIA has made progress in leaps in the past year under the new leadership. Malik’s aviation & management experience were an asset for PIA & improved operations, expanded opportunities, and took hard decisions for the greater good rather than individual gain! #PIANeedsArshadMalik pic.twitter.com/dgiGZcpc60— Aphrodite (@TheGrumpyDoctor) January 2, 2020
In the beginning, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has been one of the best airlines in the world, but then came bad phase & it went in loss – recently got to know a positive news that PIA’s monthly operational losses drop by 50%#PIAneedsArshadMalik pic.twitter.com/AHLIYWjvy8— Afshan Younus (@AfshanYounus) January 2, 2020
Sad to see that those who are making a positive change for PIA are being stopped! If the experience required is to run the airline to the ground like many before, yes he doesnt have that qualification. But he has proved himself on pulling up the business #pianeedsarshadmalik— FK (@faisalkapadia) January 2, 2020
PIA is doing good and on the right track. It needs continuity in the leadership that doing a good job and is showing results. Under Arshad Malik services PIA generating extra ordinary revenue— Zunair Khan (@zunairkh) January 2, 2020
