A United States team recently visited Pakistan to look into the security arrangements at airports in Pakistan. Now the airports will be cleared for US airlines as announced by the Federal Minister for Aviation Ghulam Sarwar Khan at a press briefing at the Parliament House.
In order to review the security arrangements at the New Islamabad International Airport, a US security team visited the airport.
The minister said that the national air carrier, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) is facing aircraft shortage. He said that five aircraft will be inducted every year into PIA. An Airbus A320 was already added into the airline back in June.
Also, Mr.Sarwar said that even though he was in favor of wrapping the air travelers baggage in plastic sheets, but the notification was issued by Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on its own in this regard. Thus, an inquiry has been ordered against the official who issued this notification.
Furthermore, the Minister said that PM Khan has highlighted the Kashmir issue in his visit to Pakistan. This is being appreciated by Kashmiris all over the world. The Prime Minister’s visit to the US was termed by Mr. Sarwar as “the visit of a statesman after former president Ayub Khan’s visit”.
