Long Delay Suffered by airblue Flight Due to an Expired Licence

Post by Abbas Ali » Wed Dec 20, 2017 3:36 pm

According to following news report, on December 19 a Dubai-bound airblue flight from Islamabad with 168 passengers suffered a delay of nearly six hours due to an expired licence. The authorities cleared the flight for departure after airblue got the licence renewed by Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Maybe Regular Public Transport (RPT) licence?

The airline's Islamabad to Riyadh flight PA-274 was also delayed by nearly three hours for operational reasons.
