The repair and overhauling works of the aircrafts of national flag carrier have not been done overseas due to financial crisis in PIA.

Foreign companies refused to provide engine to PIA due to non-payment of hundreds of thousands of dollars of dues.

Sources said that over 15 planes of the national flag carrier still remain grounded due to unavailability of engines and spares.

This has badly effected the PIA's flight schedule both on domestic and international routes.

The sources disclosed that PIA has not been able to pay $ 25 million of dues due to its financial crisis.

PIA has not paid $ 6 million to Air France for engine repair; over $ 6 million remains unpaid to Singaporean company Eagle Service Asia for the repairs of two engines while over $ 4 million remains unpaid to a Jordanian company for repairs of five engines of Boeing 747 aircraft.

End.
