PIA-Palpa dispute cancels more flights


KARACHI: Ongoing dispute between Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) and PIA Airlines Pilots Association (PALPA) has led to cancellation of another 13 flights on Friday, causing immense problems for the passengers.


The dispute started when the airline revoked licenses of two pilots, forcing the PALPA to announce non-cooperation with PIA authorities.

According to PIA spokesperson, talks are underway with PALPA on the Working Agreement.

As per PALPA’s directives, the flying crew has not delayed any Hajj flight.

Meanwhile, passengers have been advised to call 111-786-786 for getting information about their flights.

The PIA has also activated its call centers to inform passengers about any delay in the flights through SMS and phone calls.
