All Pakistani pilots working for Vietnamese airlines have valid and legitimate licences

A month after grounding all Pakistani pilots, Vietnam has stated all the pilots flying for their airlines have valid and legitimate licences. A note from the Pakistani embassy to the Vietnamese government, states that none of the pilots have been involved in a flight incident or safety threat. It also said that there are no fake licences, as mentioned by the media.

Vietnam had licensed 27 Pakistani pilots and 12 of them were still active. The other 15 pilots’ contracts had expired or were inactive due to the coronavirus pandemic, according to Vietnam’s Civil Aviation Authority.
