CAA seeks clarification over security clearance of PIA’s German COO
In a letter written to the national airline, Khawar Ghayas Director Air Transport and Economic Regulation, it was said that the security clearance is mandatory under the National Aviation Policy 2015 and prescribed regulations.
The CAA said that it has not received any communication from the PIA over the employment and pre-requisite security clearance of the COO and several media reports indicate that it has not been received.
The letter requested the PIA to clarify on the status of the security clearance. In case it has not been received, the airline has been requested to initiate proceedings to obtain the security clearance as soon as possible.
