ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) - The Boeing Company President expressed the views that Boeing sees a viable chance to convert the PIA’s existing 777 300 ERs into the new 787 Dreamliner to fulfil the vision of the Prime Minister for a PIA branded Premium Service into Europe and the Heart of Asia.

The interest was shown in a letter written by Vice Chairman, President and CEO of Boeing’s Commercial Airlines Ray Conner to Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, according to statement issued by the PM’s Office here on Wednesday.

The Boeing President urged the Prime Minister to work with Boeing to complete the replacement process, enabling PIA to operate the most technologically advanced aircraft in the cosmos so that masses of Pakistan will become proud to flee with it once again.

Boeing has delivered a long relationship with Pakistan International Airlines, dating back to the 1960s that continues today with the Boeing 777.

The Prime Minister has directed the concerned quarters to consider the proposal within the legal framework in vogue.
