PIA flights to Europe may be banned: Report

Lahore – Pakistan International Airlines is yet to face another setback as reports have surfaced that PIA flights to Europe and Middle East may be banned on pretext of safety concerns.

PIA flights are in danger of being banned in Europe due to low safety index of Boeing 777 and Airbus 320.

The Safety Assessment of Foreign Aircraft (SAFA) launched by the European Civil Aviation Conference in 1996, aims to enforce international safety standards within the European community. ------------------------------

According to sources, technical and management issues in Boeing 777 and Airbus 320 could result in PIA flights getting banned from entering European and Middle- Eastern air spaces.
