PIA decides to ground all pilots with suspected licenses

KARACHI: The management of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has decided to ground all pilots with suspected fake and “dubious licenses”.

According to the reports of Baaghi TV, around 150 pilots with suspected licenses have been barred from flying the aircraft and pilots who verify their licenses will be taken on duty.

Senior anchorperson and investigative journalist, Mubasher Lucman, also tweeted regarding the matter saying that ‘this follows startling revelations in the National Assembly’.

As per the PIA management, the grounding of such a large number of pilots would affect the PIA flight operation but flight safety and passenger safety were above commercial interests. The spokesman said that six pilots with fake degrees have already been fired.
