After landing in Toronto, a Pakistan International Airlines flight attendant did not show up for the return flight. This is not the first time this has happened.
On 14 October, a Boeing 777 operated by Pakistan International Airlines PIA from Islamabad landed in Toronto. The crew was due to fly back on Sunday after two nights. However, one of the flight attendants did not turn up for duty.
The man has since been missing, the airline told Canadian television station CTV. Obviously, the whole thing happened right after the entry. The Dawn portal, citing eyewitnesses, writes that the flight attendant should not have met immediately after passport control. The rest of the crew waited on the bus for two hours looking for the man.
Run away, didn’t disappear?
But they didn’t get it. Canada’s Border Patrol is now investigating the man’s disappearance as he is believed to have gone missing and wants to start a new life in Canada.
This is not the first time that no PIA crew member has returned on foreign tours. A flight attendant and a female flight attendant are said to have gone missing in Canada this year.
similar incidents over and over again
Earlier, another PIA flight attendant went missing in February 2021 after working on a flight from Lahore – also in Canada. In July 2020, a flight attendant was also reported missing.
In 2019, a flight attendant went missing in Paris, according to the Paddle Your Owe Kanu portal. He is said to have left a handwritten notice of termination in his hotel room before fleeing to Belgium. But events go back even further: In 2018, a PIA crew member applied for asylum in Canada after serving on a flight.
The airline has already tried to address the issue. Following the flight attendant’s disappearance in February 2021, the PIA announced that it would confiscate the passports of the crew upon entry. Perhaps this is also one of the reasons why the man who has now disappeared cannot be found immediately after entering the country.
