On Tuesday, April 23, 2019, McDonald’s Pakistan and Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) inked a Memorandum of Understanding to put together a special offer for the passengers of the national carrier, in a ceremony held at McDonald’s Airport Branch, Karachi.
As part of the agreement, McDonald’s will be branding the boarding passes with its special offer that will be valid on all nationwide restaurants for PIA passengers. This is sure to be a valuable proposition for both the brands as PIA has over 6 million passengers, including local and international flyers. To propel things further ahead, both the brands are looking to explore multiple collaborative opportunities, such as serving McCafe coffee during all PIA flights and at various airport lounges.
