Frustrated by Pakistan International Airlines’ (PIA) failure to repay Rs127 billion, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on Wednesday decided to bar the airline from collecting airport charges from its passengers, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Wednesday.
Similarly, people travelling on board PIA flights will not be able to avail boarding facilities from November 1 onwards.
The CAA has also decided to stop power supply to the national flag carrier’s planes.
The letter further reads that the PIA has to repay the total amount in installments, each of which totals around Rs250 million.
