Pakistan exempts crew of all airlines from coronavirus test
The TV channel reported that the airlines crew will have to submit a health declaration form (HDF) with all the details, the PCAA said on Saturday. However, the PCAA said, passengers using the category-B airlines will have to provide the coronavirus test report as per the standard operating procedure (SOPs).
On October 1, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) gave clean-chit to 58 Pakistani pilots who were put on the list of pilots having ‘fake licences’.
Two record-holders, Maryam and Erum, were also among the PIA pilots whose names have been removed from the list of ‘fake pilots’.
The CAA has been in action against alleged fake pilots in the wake of the May 22 plane crash in Karachi while the opposition ‘smelt a rat’.
The dubious degrees of pilots drew global attention on June 24 when Federal Minister Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan presented the plane tragedy report to the parliament.
