The Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has started taking strange (rather religious) measures to prevent its aircraft from aviation accidents.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of Pakistan may have cleared the ATR planes for operations but before they were made airborne, the authorities at the airport opted for slaughter of a black goat in the Islamabad airport to prevent any “unwanted incident” stimulated by the fear of the accidents that have been going on.
The aircraft of the airlines with registration number PK-581 was to take-off with 48 passengers on board from Multan to Karachi when it faced terrible incident.
According to the airlines, 10 of its ATR aircraft are grounded until all of them are cleared to fly after a detailed examination.
The suspension of the ATR aircraft of the PIA will affect the flights to smaller airports like Gwadar, Turbat, Panjgur, Mohenjo Daro, Zhob, Bahawalpur, Dera Ghazi Khan, Chitral and Gilgit according to a statement.
