According to the PIA’s spokesperson, both the passengers have been blacklisted, while the flight departed for Islamabad from the Heathrow airport after delay of an hour.
Earlier on December 9, a passenger of a Pakistan International Airline (PIA) Islamabad-bound flight was caught smoking in the aircraft toilet by the cabin crew.
According to PIA spokesperson, a strong odour of cigarette smoke came from the toilet on board PIA flight PK-792, going from Birmingham to Islamabad.
The cabin crew stopped the passenger, named Raza Hussain, from smoking and told him about the policy that bans smoking in planes. The PIA administration confiscated his passport for violating international rules.
However, the passport of the passenger was returned to him later on after he paid fine of Rs10,000.
