A four-member security assessment team from the UK Department for Transport (UK-DfT) recently visited Islamabad International Airport with the aim of evaluating its security measures. This visit holds significant importance as the UK, along with several EU countries, had suspended Pakistan International Airlines’ (PIA) flight operations due to concerns over pilot license authenticity.

During their inspection, the UK inspectors scrutinized various aviation procedures and processes, including passenger handling, crew procedures, baggage delivery, and vehicle screening. They also reviewed aircraft and cargo security measures and received a detailed briefing from Airport Security Force (ASF) officials.

Overall, the UK-DfT team expressed satisfaction with the security measures implemented at the airport, stating that they generally adhere to the standards set by the UK-DfT. This positive assessment indicates that Islamabad International Airport meets international security standards, potentially improving Pakistan’s aviation reputation globally.

The team departed from Islamabad for the UK after completing their assessment, with expectations to submit a final report to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) within three weeks. This report will be crucial for any further decisions regarding flight operations between Pakistan and the UK/EU countries, potentially leading to the lifting of the flight suspension.
