PIA becomes one of the best airlines in the world
Earlier this month, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) had become one of the best airlines in the world after achieving zero indexes in the audit conducted by European air safety watchdog SAFA (Safety Audit for Foreign-Origin Aircraft.)
SAFA conducted its periodically and surprise safety checks for all the non-European Airlines at different airports in the world. PIA was under intense scrutiny by SAFA inspectors at most of the international airports following fake license scandals of the pilot in Pakistan.
With zero findings being recorded by SAFA in the last few weeks, the air safety watchdog lowered its safety hazard index to zero, which is considered a perfect score.
Regarding this, Arshad Malik, the CEO of PIA, added that now the management is focusing on in-house safety checks on international flights. Arshad Malik said that he is restructuring the PIA’s Safety Department. New safety culture has been introduced where special emphasis and career incentives are given to employees who adhere to rules.
Hence, it is also incumbent upon the passengers to take care of cleanliness to make the national carrier among the best airlines.
