Malaysia restores 18 grounded Pakistani pilots

The Civil Aviation Authority of Malaysia has restored all 18 Pakistani pilots who were grounded.

Earlier this month, Malaysia temporarily suspended Pakistani-licensed pilots.

It may be recalled that there are a total of 860 pilots in Pakistan out of which 107 are working for foreign airlines.

On July 3, the Malaysian Civil Aviation Authority said in a statement that it was in constant touch with the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority to verify the pilots’ licenses and that the pilots whose licenses were found to be valid would be reinstated immediately.

It may be recalled that the government had issued a list of 262 pilots, including 141 pilots of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), on charges of forged or suspicious licenses.
