F.P. Report

KARACHI: Passengers landed in deep trouble because of an AirSial’s faulty flight on Thursday.

AirSial flight PF-123 was due to leave Karachi for Islamabad at 4pm but it had developed a fault. The passengers were informed about the problem and asked to wait.

After having the plane repaired, the passengers were allowed to get in but the problem re-emerged when the captain attempted to take off. They started protest against the mismanagement in the plane.

However, they were taken out of the aircraft and housed at the lounge where they continued their protest. They raised slogans against the mismanagement and called upon the authorities concerned to look into the matter.

According to AirSial Chief Operating Officer Tariq Amin, the fault has re-emerged thrice, therefore the flight, PF123, has been cancelled. He said, the passengers would be adjusted to other Islamabad-bound flights tomorrow. 

In December last, Prime Minister Imran Khan launched AirSial, the country’s third private airline aimed at improving domestic air travel.
