PIA suspends dozens of employees with fake degrees

  • The airline has taken action against 52 employees in the month of June, out of which 25 employees were suspended for dubious degrees.
Published July 3, 2020

The national carrier, Pakistan International Airline (PIA) has taken action against 52 of its employees in one month.

According to details, a letter has been issued by PIA's Human Resource Department under which the airline has taken action against 52 employees in the month of June, out of which 25 employees were suspended for dubious degrees.

Meanwhile, 21 employees were suspended for persistent absenteeism and one for violating SOPs. Furthermore, two employees have also been suspended for leaking official information on social media, while two employees have been demoted for violating applicable rules and one employee has been suspended for absenting from duty. ۔

On the other hand, eleven PIA employees were also awarded certificates of appreciation for their good performance.

The national airline is in the news these days after Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan announced last week the grounding of 262 airline pilots suspected of dodging their exams, a move that caused global concern.

The minister said the pilots included 141 from Pakistan International Airlines (PIA), nine from Air Blue, 10 from Serene Airline, and 17 from Shaheen Airlines.

The action on the "dubious" licences was prompted by the preliminary report on an airliner crash in Karachi that killed 97 people last month. It found the plane's pilots failed to follow standard procedures and disregarded alarms.
