Pakistani experts to inform EASA of steps taken to lift PIA ban


The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has announced that it will be adding a rest requirement of 16 hours for its long range flights. This change comes after the airline was required to 24 hours, including one local night. A team of Pakistani aviation officials will be sent to Brussels next month to inform the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) about the steps taken to restore PIA’s flight operations. The director general of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has said that, after an online audit in October this year by the International Aviation Safety Assessment (IASA), a physical one would also take place by EASA.

1. What are the new rest requirements for airline pilots?

The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has stated that it will be sending a team of experts to Pakistan to assess the steps that have been taken to lift the ban on Pakistan International Airlines (PIA). The new requirements for airline pilots are as follows:

-A minimum of 10 hours rest in any 24 hour period
-A minimum of 72 hours rest in any 7 day period
-A minimum of 168 hours rest in any 28 day period

EASA has said that the new requirements are in line with international standards and that they will be working closely with PIA to ensure that the airline is in compliance with these standards.

2. Why is a team of Pakistani aviation officials going to Brussels?

A team of Pakistani aviation officials is traveling to Brussels in order to meet with officials from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). The purpose of this meeting is to discuss the steps that Pakistan has taken in order to lift the ban that was placed on Pakistan International Airlines (PIA).Pakistan has taken a number of steps to improve its aviation safety standards, and the Pakistani officials are hopeful that they will be able to convince the EASA to lift the ban on PIA. This would be a major victory for Pakistan, as the EASA is one of the world’s leading aviation safety agencies.

Quick Summary

The new airport charges are a result of the increase in air travel and the need for airports to generate more revenue. The charges are also a way for airports to discourage drivers from drop-offs, which can cause congestion. The charges vary by airport, but they are typically around $5-$10 for a 15-minute drop-off.
