KARACHI: Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has decided to collect outstanding dues on behalf of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) directly from the carrier’s passengers. The regulator has conveyed its decision to PIA chief finance officer (CFO), it emerged Thursday. The communiqué said that the outstanding dues are worth Rs125 billion and the amount would be collected directly owing to the incumbent financial crunch. The authority would directly collect security charges and embarkation fees and passengers would be issued tokens or receipts for payment. The PIA staffers could only allow passengers to board a plane after verifying that the amount has been paid.
