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’s aviation authority has grounded all Pakistani pilots working for its local airlines, after news about “dubious” licences used by pilots drew global attention. The suspension will be in effect until further notice from Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV), as the authority is coordinating with Pakistani authorities to review the pilots’ profiles.
