Inquiry ordered on SAFA findings


Karachi; December 12, 2015

Taking note of reports published in a section of press regarding detection of safety violations by Safety Assessment of Foreign Aircraft (SAFA), an international regulatory body, on two PIA flights, PIACL Management has ordered inquiry into the matter, so that appropriate measures are taken to avoid their recurrence in future.

Two PIA flights recently underwent routine SAFA inspections at foreign destinations, during which few findings were made, which were immediately corrected and flights released.

SAFA conducts routine inspections of all foreign aircraft against its approved laid down standards. No airline can operate without meeting SAFA's operational and maintenance safety standards and PIA, for a number of years has successfully ensured maintaining these standards.
