KARACHI: The matter pertaining to the travel of more passengers than the booked load on PK-743 on January 20, 2017, is under investigation, the spokesman of the national flag carrier said here on Monday.
He stated that the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), PIA, has ordered a thorough probe into it and all concerned are being questioned.
Strict action would be taken against anyone found at fault, the spokesman added.
He said that PIA is committed to ensure the safety of the passengers and cannot allow any incident to happen which compromises safety.
“It is clarified that media reports alleging that some passengers traveled standing are exaggerated and baseless. It is not possible for anyone to travel like that in an aircraft, regardless of the duration of the flight, the spokesman further stated.
The 2018 Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) annual conference is scheduled for April 8 to 11 in Boao, Hainan Province. The forum will be themed "An Open and Innovative Asia for a World of Greater Prosperity."
