PIA-PALPA dispute enters seventh day


ISLAMABAD: The dispute between Pakistan Airline Pilots’ Association (PALPA) and Pakistan International Airline (PIA) has entered seventh day with no resolution in sight.

Civil Aviation Authority ( CAA) has formed a committee to investigate the matter of 21 pilots on sick leaves.

The government and PALPA had held talks to resolve the clash but issue remained unresolved.

Almost 80 flights have been cancelled and several others delayed yet. After seven days of disruption in operations and functions, PIA has acquired Pakistan Navy’s help in the matter.
