PIA advertisement

PIA advertisement  (Abbas Ali Collection)

This advertisement from 1965 shows PIA air-hostess in early 1960s uniform and a very nice illustration of Boeing 720-040B flying above snow-covered mountains on a majestic star-lit night. The advertisement exactly reads: "A PIA Boeing 720B fan jet holds the world record for the fastest time between London and Karachi, London and Beirut and Beirut and Karachi. PIA are the first international airline to pioneer a new route with modern jets through Canton and Shanghai; the first service through Moscow and beyond. And the first airline to show inflight films to both First and Economy class passengers. It is this kind of modern and imaginative enterprise which explains why last year PIA - a consistently profitable airline - carried over 14% more passengers and why seasoned travellers say PIA are great people to fly with"
