US bans Pakistan national airline's charter flights over pilot-licence scandal

WASHINGTON: The US has revoked permission for Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) to conduct charter flights to the country amid concerns over certifications of pilots.

Pakistan last month grounded almost a third of its pilots after discovering they may have falsified their qualifications.

 Earlier, the European Union suspended PIA’s authorisation to fly to the bloc for six months.

Pakistan’s Geo News reported PIA had confirmed the US ban and said it would address the concerns through ongoing corrective measures within the airline.

Pakistan’s grounding of pilots with dubious credentials followed the crash of a PIA jet in May that killed 97 people.
