Earlier the European Union Air Safety Agency (EASA) imposed a six month ban on Pakistan International Airlines’ (PIA) flight operations to Europe after reports emerged that around 262 PIA pilots held dubious flying licences. 


Waheed Ahmed, Patron-in-Chief, All Pakistan Fruit & Vegetable Exporters, Importers & Merchants Association (PFVA), commented: “Turkish Airlines has assured to extend full cooperation and support at the time when the national flag carrier is confronted with an acute shortage of manpower, making it very difficult to export mangoes and other fruits & vegetables by air to Europe, the sincere offer of cooperation & support by the Turkish Airlines to facilitate the export of this sector is commendable. Meeting of the PFVA delegation with the general manager of Turkish Airlines in Pakistan, Gurhan Sozen to promote cooperation has been very fruitful.”
