PIA to Seek Help From Canadian Authorities After Two More Cabin Crew Slip Away In a Week

The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plans to seek assistance from the country’s Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and Canadian immigration authorities after two of its crew members went missing in Canada this week. The recent incidents mark the 10th case of such disappearances in the last two years.

This trend is observed amid an increase in the number of Pakistani nationals attempting to reach developed countries, motivated by challenging economic conditions at home.

The disappearance of Flight Steward Jibran Baloch and Airhostess Maryam Raza in Canada indicates a concerning trend among white-collar workers. PIA is implementing measures and seeking help from authorities to locate and bring back the missing cabin crew.

PIA spokesperson Abdullah Khan has disclosed plans to take action through the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and Canadian immigration authorities after three crew members, including Airhostess Faiza Mukhtar in January, disappeared in Canada this year.

The total number of airline crew members who have “vanished” in the North American country has now reached 10 over the last two years.

 Khan attributed this trend to the “easy access to asylum and the general trend of people trying to flee the country.” Despite implementing various measures, including profiling and age restrictions, the airline has been unsuccessful in preventing such incidents. The economic challenges in Pakistan have driven many to seek better opportunities abroad.
