About PIA Cargo

PIA Freight Operations

PIA Cargo is a reliable name in the shipment of commercial cargo. The name is well established. PIA commenced cargo operations in 1974, with flights to USA, Europe, and Hong Kong on the B-707 aircraft. PIA Cargo even has the unique distinction of introducing Pakistan's fruits to international markets and also pioneered the exports of fresh fruits and vegetables to global destinations, including popularizing the king of fruit Mango in markets abroad.

Operating as the air freight division of Pakistan's national carrier, PIA Cargo has achieved rapid growth and reaches out to destinations spanning the globe through its passenger scheduled flights & varied SPA partners.

PIA Cargo earns valuable revenue for Pakistan International Airlines and provides a massive boost to Pakistan's wide spectrum of exports. The aggressive growth of PIA Cargo coupled with PIA's rapidly expanding passenger operations empowers customers with a range of cutting-edge cargo services.

In addition to offering cargo services, PIA Cargo also arranges (on demand) charter flights to lift meat, livestock and relief goods within and outside Pakistan.
