The Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) suspended the Air Operator Certificate of Air Indus for safety reasons. A decision that was rejected by the Sindh High Court (SHC).
Pakistani domestic carrier Air Indus commenced operations in 2013 and operated three Boeing 737-300 passenger aircraft. Two of which are airworthy.
“Despite repeated safety directives and warnings, the operator did not make any improvement and ignored the safety instructions,” the CAA said in a statement quoted by local media.
The suspension became effective on July 1 and would remain until all safety concerns have been addressed. Yet on July 2, the Sindh High Court (SHC) rejected the decision and allowed Air Indus to fly again.
