Earlier, Baaghi TV learnt from reliable sources that CAA has issued a notification in this regard which stated that the runways are not available “due to operational reasons” at Peshawar, Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, and Multan.

Sources reveal that this move by the aviation regulatory body is a sabotage with the airlines as five runways of different major airports of the country have been shut down right when the fog season is approaching.

Nepotism, corruption and mismanagement continues to engulf the CAA. Many believe that favouritism and nepotism has ruined the performance of the authority risking lives of hundreds of thousands of passengers.

The only criteria for appointment or promotion in the CAA is to have sufficient strings to pull, or a close relative/friend in authority.

Transparency and discipline must be enforced within the CAA and other regulatory agencies. The Government of Pakistan should take action against the authorities who are responsible for the damage and review the current organisational setup of the recruiting body.
