Statement by Spokesperson 

Karachi; September 2, 2016

In response to a picture shared on social media by Spokesperson PIA regarding airline's two female pilots becoming the first pair of real sisters to concurrently fly the Boeing 777 aircraft in PIA, few media reports have erroneously reported that they are flying the same aircraft together. This led many to believe as if one of the sisters had been made Captain of Boeing 777, which is not correct. 

In fact both the sisters, who made history, are First Officers and fly the big jet alongside a Captain which is usually a pilot having around 20 years of experience in flying.

This has already been explained that both sisters are flying Boeing 777 aircraft concurrently on different flights.
