PIA’s Islamabad-bound flight develops fault


KARACHI: A Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight from Karachi to Islamabad has developed a technical fault before taking off to its destination.

The passengers of the PIA’s Karachi-Islamabad flight have faced a delay in departure for more than 1.5 hours following the aircraft’s technical fault.

Airport sources said that the flight is likely to depart for Islamabad at 5:30 pm now and the engineers are currently repairing the aircraft. Sources added that the flight will be cleared to take off after the clearance of the technical fault.

Earlier in the day, it emerged that the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) and Air Canada aircraft had a close call at Toronto airport due to alleged negligence by the former’s pilot.

Canada’s aviation regulator has issued a report on the near-miss that took place on Oct 17.

The incident involved a PIA Boeing 777-200 aircraft that was preparing to take off from Toronto airport for Islamabad and an Air Canada Boeing 777-333ER arriving from Incheon, South Korea.
