A seven-member International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) combined action team will reach Pakistan today to assess the country’s air security as well as to discuss the issue of resumption of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flights to destinations in Europe and the USA, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Sunday. 

The team, led by Dr. Manjeet Singh, will inspect the security arrangements made at the country’s different airports between November 6 and November 10.

It is pertinent to mention here that the virtual audit conducted by the ICAO recently remained positive for Pakistan.

The organization gave over 76 per cent points to the country in terms of security clearance and taking other positive steps.

The team will also review the security arrangements made by the PIA and Makai Charter Airline.

In the event of ICAO giving a clean chit to the PIA, the latter’s flight operation to Europe and the USA will resume.

The airline’s flight operation to Europe has not been restored even after the passage of three years.
