PTEA seeks international flight operations from Faisalabad

Oct '11
Textile exporters in Pakistan have demanded operation of direct international flights to and from Faisalabad, the country's biggest textile hub. They have also called for relocation of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) offices from airport to the city.

Pakistan Textile Exporters Association (PTEA) Chairman, Rana Arif Tauseef, while making these demands, said Faisalabad, apart from being Pakistan's third largest city, is also an internationally recognized textile centre and export originating destination.

He said a great deal of overseas buyers visit Faisalabad, and also domestic exporters too pay frequent visits to Europe and USA and export textiles worth four billion USD, each year.

Due to unavailability of direct international flights from Faisalabad, the textile exporters either need to take the route of Karachi and board an international flight from there, or reach Lahore airport by road and take flight from there, he added.

Thus, considering this clumsy and time consuming process, it has become necessary to start direct international flights from Faisalabad, the PTEA Chairman said.

He stated that though PTEA provided financial backing to the civil aviation department in revamping the Faisalabad airport for international flights, the dream as yet remains unfulfilled for some unknown reasons.

While entrepreneurs from all across the globe are resorting to air routes instead of sea routes to facilitate speedy transportation of their export consignments, exporters from Faisalabad are forced to use sea routes due to unavailability of air cargo facility on home ground, Mr. Tauseef said.
