Mashhood Tajwar, the PIA’s spokesperson, told DAWN that usually women 28 weeks pregnant were not allowed to travel by air, but permission was given in special cases on production of a medical certificate.

“The airline staff is unaware about pregnancy at the time passengers check in or board a plane as most women are covered in shawls or chadors,” he said, adding that all cabin crew members were fully trained to handle such emergencies.
