USA bans Pakistan International Airlines (PIA)
US has taken a decision to ban Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flights operation to US. So, there wouldn’t be any special direct flights to US from Pakistan
Why USA has banned PIA (Pakistan International Airlines)?
- Due to recent events identified by the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority that are of serious concern to aviation safety, specifically matters pertaining to the proper certification of certain Pakistani pilots
- Due to another news where the aviation minister of Pakistan has announced the grounding of 262 airline pilots in Pakistan over fake licenses.
- Due to fake certifications & education qualifications of Pilots
This is the first time where US transport authority has given permission to PIA for operating 12 direct flights to US for repatriates for carrying stranded people during this pandemic situation
