Lahore, 21st March, 6:00 PM: Pilots from the Pakistan International Airline (PIA) who got early retirement from the company are facing tough times due to the non-payment of their dues.
According to the report of Baaghi TV, a PIA pilot named Capt. Adnan Zarez, who has been rendering his services to PIA for 18 years has come forward explaining his plight after the non-payment of dues from the national carrier.
A video has surfaced on social media where the former pilot can be seen carrying a placard with his demands. In the video, the captain said that he had opted for the PIA’s voluntary withdrawal scheme in December 2020, according to which the airline was supposed to pay him his dues by January 20.
He added, “But today is March 20 and we have not received any dues so far.”
Captain Adnan further reported, “I was accompanied by 20 other captains. Two of them have died due to the conditions that are being adopted with us. The household of these two captains has been destroyed.”
Adnan said, “The officials of the institution do not know the condition of their children, only I am aware of the plight their families are going through.”
