KARACHI: Pakistan Airline Pilots’ Association (PALPA) said on Tuesday that any action by PIA management to ensure the safety of passengers would be supported by the association.

A spokesman for the association hailed the management’s decision for pilots to undergo a mandatory medical checkup before flights to ensure aviation safety.

“Flight safety has been the prime concern of the pilot community while the Leeds incident only endorsed what the association has been highlighting since the last few years,” said the PALPA spokesman.

He went on to add that PALPA would not compromise on flight safety issues and would not allow its members to break the rules. “The safety of passengers should not be jeopardized in any case.”
