The Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) has fined Qatar Airways for violating Code 19 of the Standard Operating Procedure (SOPs) because it failed to comply with the 24 News HD TV channel on Saturday. A corona virus flew into a positive patient.

On a Qatar Airways international flight, a positive patient of Covid 19 appeared, endangering the health and safety of passengers as well as airport staff.

The CAA imposed a fine of Rs 16 million on Qatar Airways flight QR604 and directed the airline to deposit the fine in the CAA’s deposit account at Jinnah International Airport, Karachi.

Hammad, a positive patient of Cowed 19, traveled on a Qatar Airways flight, after which CAA Air Transport took notice of the international airline and imposed a fine.

The CAA further ordered that the airline would now bear the entire cost of medical treatment and quarantine of patients.

The CAA is committed to continuing to take action against such violations.

Earlier, the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) announced a major relief for all airlines as it exempted its staff from mandatory corona virus tests.

According to the TV channel, the PCAA also exempted airline staff from the Corona virus test in category-B. Category B Airlines staff will no longer need the Covid 19 test.

The PCAA said on Saturday that the TV channel had reported that the airline staff would have to submit a Health Declaration Form (HDF) with all the details.

However, PCAA said passengers using Category-B airlines must provide corona virus test reports in accordance with Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

Pakistan has already abolished the COVID-19 test requirement for staff and passengers on Category A Airlines’ list of 30 countries.
