The decision to re-design the airline’s logo was made in view of the new Islamabad airport inauguration, according to the PIA spokesperson Mashhood.
There have been hints of the new design on PIA’s social media pages for quite some time. But the company finally revealed the secret on April 6, 2018 by changing its profile pictures to Markhor.
Markhor, known for its long screw horn, is one of the most beautiful wild animals inhabiting the mountainous regions of Pakistan.

PIA is all set to conduct its first mock flight from the New Islamabad International Airport on April 7, in which around 250 family members of its employees will pass through security scans and baggage checks, before proceeding to the customs counters, as a mock exercise.
There is no mention of the cost of the entire procedure by PIA which has incurred huge losses in last few years, leading to closure of flights to USA as well as its Premier Service.
