ISLAMABAD: Pakistan International Airlines (PIA’s) two flight attendants slipped away in Canada after the national airline’s flight from Islamabad reached Toronto.
The PIA spokesperson in a statement issued on Monday said that the two flight attendants – Khalid Afridi and Fida Shah – reached Canada from Islamabad by flight PK-772.
“On its scheduled return to the country, the two crew members did not turn up in Toronto and the flight of the national flag carrier had to proceed without them,” he added.
The spokesperson said, the local authority of Canada has been contacted in this regard while strict action will be taken against both of them after the investigation is completed.
Dozens of air hostesses of the national airline have slipped abroad, including female air hostesses and mail cabin crew.
Earlier in July, a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) steward went ‘missing’ from a hotel after his arrival in Toronto, Canada from Lahore.
The mysterious missing of the PTI steward came to light when flight steward Muntazir Mehdi didn’t report for duty on a flight back to Pakistan.
Subsequently, the matter was brought to the notice of the airline management and Canadian immigration authorities.
Before Mehdi, four flight stewards and air hostesses of the national airline have slipped into Canada for citizenship.
