PIA to provide compensation to victims' families, survivors today

  • The national flag carrier will give compensation to those families who have provided the PIA with succession-related documents
23 Oct 2020

(Karachi) Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will begin a process of providing compensation of Rs10 million to the survivors and families of the victims of the ill-fated PK-8303 flight that crashed in Karachi earlier this year, media reported on Friday.

As per details, the national flag carrier will give compensation to those families who have provided the PIA with succession-related documents.

In the first phase, five people will be given compensation money. Among them, two are the survivors of the plane crash incident who would also receive an amount of Rs 10 million.

A PIA spokesman said that they have already provided Rs1 million to the families of the victims before and the remaining amount to the families would be provided after they would provide succession certificates to the airline authorities.

“We have applied claims with the insurance company on behalf of the families of all those victims, who had provided their succession related documents,” he added.

He stated that most of the families have yet to submit the documents to the PIA, causing a delay in the process to provide the compensation amount to the families of the victims.

On May 22, a PIA flight crashed near Karachi's Model Colony area. The flight PK-8303 was enroute from Lahore to Karachi.

The plane, A320 Airbus, was carrying 91 passengers and eight crew members and was scheduled to land at Jinnah International Airport when it developed some technical fault.
