Pakistan International Airlines has passed the IATA audit.
Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has passed the IATA safety audit (IOSA) for the resumption of flights to the European Union, the United Kingdom and the United States. The IOSA registration has now been successfully renewed and is valid until June 23, 2023.
However, the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) must also wait for the audit conducted by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) before it can resume flights to destinations in Europe and the USA.
At the end of June 2020, The PIA has been banned from flying in European airspace and American. After a plane crash on May 22, which led to the deaths of 98 people, revealed that 30% of the company's 860 pilots worked under false licenses.
PIA flights were banned to the European Union, the United Kingdom and the United States in May 2020.
As a result, PIA flights were banned to the European Union, the United Kingdom and the United States. The PIA has been instructed to conduct safety audits by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) in order to resume flights on Western routes. The fiasco of false licenses for PIA will not end until the National Regulatory Authority PCAA receives the results of special audits performed by ICAO.
Last year, the airline underwent two verification audits - the first had a limited scope and the second was a verification audit, a full audit that covered flight operations, flight services (cabin operations), insurance quality, safety management, security services, engineering and maintenance services, ground handling, loading operations and landing and take-off procedures.
