Four Douglas DC-3s were obtained in February 1947 and operations started on 4 June 1947. The designated route was Calcutta-Akyab (now Sittwe)-Rangoon (now Yangon) in Burma (now Mayanmar), which also happened to be the first post-war international operation to be flown by an airline registered in the British Raj.
Orient Airways, along with the help of some chartered BOAC aircraft, transported the people between Delhi and Karachi in 1947. Later, Orient Airways transferred its base to Pakistan with a skeleton fleet of just two DC-3s, three crew and twelve mechanics. Its initial routes were Karachi-Lahore-Peshawar, Karachi-Quetta-Lahore, and Karachi-Delhi-Calcutta-Dacca. By the end of 1949, Orient Airways had acquired 10 DC-3s and 3 Convair 240s.
On 11 March 1955, the government of Pakistan merged Orient Airways with other airlines to form Pakistan International Airlines.

    Kaya baat hai, janab! Yaad-e -maazi bhi aik haqiqat hai.

  2. Usman Malik says:

    Hello,
    Can anyone tell me how much a monthly newspaper, in Lahore, would have cost in 1963-66, please?
    And, would newspapers have published poetry competitions?
    Thank you.

  3. Javed Khan Tareen says:

    For some reason money did not matter too much in those days and most of us were contented with whatever we had.

  4. Brig Aslam Khan (R) AC (33 PMA) says:

    Good memories refreshed. Good Job & thanks.

  5. Maj M. Arfaeen iqbal (r) says:

    Correction: GRUNDIG radios were not manufactured by Syed Bhais…Syed Bhais in Lahore were authorized distributors of this German Brand!

  6. Col Shah Alam (R), Canada says:

    Nostalgic indeed! Considering that the labour wages those days hovered around Rs.50 per month, a ticket from Karachi to Lahore for Rs. 146 in 1954 must have been astronomically expensive.

    • Masood Anwar says:

      I will say: time was inexpensive, so, we were happier then. Cost comparisons never come out in one’s favour, I believe.
