The United States has become the latest nation to ban Pakistan International Airlines ever since the pilot license scandal came to light.

The airline has been banned from operating any charter flights to the country after 150 of its pilots were grounded on the grounds of holding a fake or dubious licence.

The move comes after the European Union aviation regulator banned PIA flights from operating to Europe for six months.

Pakistan’s aviation minister had revealed in June, that a review of pilots that was conducted following the PIA plane crash in Karachi that killed 98 people, had found around 260 of its 860 active pilots held a fake licence or cheated in the exams.

The US Department of Transport had earlier granted PIA special permission to operated charter flights to bring back stranded Pakistani nationals amid COVID-19 lockdown. This permission has now been revoked.
