Islamabad, July 11 (IANS) Pakistan’s national carrier Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has ended the contract of its most expensive employee who was drawing $50,000 a month, a media report said.

Deputy managing director Salim Sayani, who was appointed in 2009, was drawing $50,000 a month, reported Dawn.

“On the directives of the National Assembly Standing Committee for Defence and Ministry of Defence; the PIA Board of Directors has cancelled the contract of Salim Sayani working as deputy managing director PIA,” the media report cited a press release as saying.

All is not well with PIA and President Asif Ali Zardari had in October last year called for implementation of a reform plan to tone it up. The plan called for arresting rising liabilities, stemming general decline and converting PIA into a profitable organisation.
