RAWALPINDI: The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has removed Markhor logo on its planes.
The national flag career has restored its old slogan ‘Great People to Fly With’ and discontinue its new blue logo on the order of the apex court.
PIA Chief Executive Officer and chairman Air Marshal Arshad Malik has issued directives to all concerned to discontinue from stationery products, billboards, documents and all other places.
It said the old logo and the slogan ‘Great People to Fly With’ have been adopted and it will be reproduced on all documents and platforms.
According to PIA spokesman the public acceptance of Markhor — the country’s national animal — was not good as well as the Supreme Court had also barred the PIA from replacing the Pakistan flag on the tails of its aircraft. He said that the picture of Markhor had also been removed from one aircraft after the SC orders.
In May last year, Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar had ordered the PIA management to stop replacing the national flag on the tail of its aircraft with a picture of Markhor.
