The airline’s passengers will now be able to book their tickets online, give feedback and also check-in through PIA website or mobile apps prior to arrival at the airport.
These added facilities and features are part of the Digital Transformation Program at PIA with the aim to facilitate its passengers by providing online and self service capabilities. On one hand the mobile app will facilitate PIA customers and on other hand it will help the National Flag Carrier PIA to increase its direct sales.
Online Check-in facility is available both on PIA website and its mobile apps, however initially available for domestic flights between Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad and will soon be implemented on all other domestic and international flights.
Passengers will be able to perform web check-in 24 hours prior to the scheduled departure and up to three hours before the flight departure time. However, passengers with web check-in would be required to report at check-in counter for baggage drop off at least 45 minutes prior to the flight departure time due to stringent security checks at the airport.
