Pakistan’s national airline has taken notice of the absenteeism in the institution. 

It has sent show-cause notices to 54 members, including 45 women and nine men, of the cabin crew. The employees have been accused of taking salaries even though they have been on leaves for a long time.

PIA has suspended 65 cabin crew members and 16 pilots over possession of fake degrees.

On February 12, the government approved another bailout package worth Rs5.6 billion for the national airline. The decision was approved by the Economic Coordination Committee.

This is the second financial support for PIA which has been approved by the PTI government. In November 2018, the government provided it with a package worth Rs17.2 billion.

Last year, a report was presented in the Supreme Court, in which it was disclosed that the PIA’s accumulated losses have surged to Rs 356 billion, while overall liabilities are Rs406 billion against the assets of only Rs111 billion.
