UK withdraws PIA permit to operate from Birmingham, London, and Manchester airports

The news of pilots holding dubious licenses has continued to take a toll on Pakistan Airlines as the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority announced that that they will be withdrawing Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) permit to operate in three of their airports and the United Arab Emirate will be verifying credentials of its Pakistani pilots and engineers.
UK authorities told Reuters “PIA flights from Birmingham, London, Heathrow and Manchester airports are suspended immediately effective.”
These three were the major flying destinations for the airlines.
The United Arab Emirates will be verifying credentials of all the Pakistani pilots and engineers in the airlines after 262 pilots were docked for having dubious credentials.
The director-general of the UAE’S General Civil Aviation Authority Saif Muhammed Al Suwaida requested the verification of credentials of Pakistani pilots, aircraft maintenance engineers, and flight operations officers working in the country in the letter which gets reviewed by Reuters to Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) Director-General Hassan Nasir Jamy.
The letter said, “We would like to request your good offices to verify the licensing credentials of the attached pilots who are currently holding UAE’s pilot’s licenses based on licenses and qualifications issued by PCAA.”
