Pakistan International Airlines: “The outlook for the aviation industry has deteriorated in the last six month with crises in the international banking system, and deepest recession since the early 80s has taken its toll on the aviation industry. Delays in spending due to economic uncertainties have resulted in weaker demand for discretionary travel. Globally airlines have recorded dips in both passenger and cargo loads and yields,” Syed Ather Ali, Director. Source: Pakistan International Airlines, 02-Sep-2009.
