DG CAA’s removal sought


KARACHI: The director general (DG) Civil Aviation Authority’s (CAA) resignation is sought over his failure to revive Pakistani flights to four European countries in the last four years.

The demand was made by the CAA Officers Association in a letter penned to the secretary of aviation. The DG CAA has failed to revive Pakistani flights to the four European countries despite the passage of four years, the letter read.

The suspension of Pakistani flights to European countries is causing billions of rupees in loss to the airlines. Appointment of a ‘professional’ DG CAA is the need of the hour to address the issue, the officers said in a letter written to the secretary of aviation.
