150 Pilots Grounded In Pakistan Amid Probe On 'Dubious Liscences'

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will be grounding nearly 150 out of its 426 pilots.

Karachi:

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will be grounding nearly 150 out of its 426 pilots, amid an inquiry that they hold "dubious" licences, a company spokesman said.

The decision comes at a time when an initial inquiry into a PIA plane crash was presented before the parliament by the country's aviation minister, who also highlighted irregularities at the national carrier.

A PIA Airbus A320 crashed on May 22 in the southern city of Karachi, killing all but two of those aboard.
