January 17, 2020

KARACHI: Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has announced a major new partnership with AccesRail, the world’s leading provider of air-rail intermodal solutions, a statement said on Thursday.

The partnership allows PIA to use AccesRail’s expertise to enable its customers to book train tickets in UK, Spain, Norway and Canada by using PIA’s booking platform, or through travel agency Global Distribution System.

This arrangement provides convenient, easy rail/bus connections at PIA’s key gateways in UK, Europe and Canada, enabling PIA passengers to reach cities and destinations other than those served by PIA.

PIA passengers would be able to connect to and from their international flights onto a number of rail/bus routes operated by major railway/bus companies in combination with PIA operating flights. The transport providers include: RENFE in Spain, VIA RAIL Canada, VI in Norway as well as Great Western Railways and Avanti West Coast in the United Kingdom.
