Panjgur incident exposes ‘preparedness of CAA’

November 12, 2018

KARACHI:
The poor handling of the situation arising out of the skidding of a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane at Panjgur Airport the other day speaks of the inefficacy on the part of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), sources told The Express Tribune.

The relief operation after the accident involving the passenger plane also exposed the efficiency and preparedness of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), the country’s most profitable institution, said the sources.

They said that during the relief operation, the required machinery, like hydraulic crane and tug master, was not available. The services of a construction contractor had to be hired to bring the ATR aircraft back to the runway, they said, adding that an expensive aircraft was brought to the airport parking with the help of a tractor.

“The plane was brought back to the runway with ropes tied around it,” said the sources, adding that the aircraft was removed from the accident site with the assistance of a local contractor, instead of a tug master.

According to the international aviation laws, the CAA is supposed to assist in case of any accident.

The sources said that due to non-availability of the required machinery at the airport, it took more than 24 hours to take the aircraft out of the soft land.

The accident has made it clear as to why other airlines stay away from flying to Panjgur and other such air bases, according to the sources.

In his reaction, a spokesperson for the CAA said, “Since only ATR aircraft lands at Panjgur airport, there is no need for a tug master which is used to provide relief to larger planes.

He added that the responsibility for arranging the machinery in case of an accident rested with the concerned airline, and not the CAA.

Panjgur Airport is a domestic and partially international airport located in Makran division of Balochistan.

According to Dunya News:

Image

The investigation report has blamed cockpit crew of flight PK-517 for incorrectly landing ATR 72-500 (AP-BKY) at Panjgur Airport. Pilots landed the aircraft in the middle of the runway instead of at the start of runway. That's why the aircraft was unable to stop on runway.

Weather was clear/fine at the time of incident.

Inept CAA is killing aviation in Pakistan. PIA can't maintain emergency / Aircraft removal equipment at the every Airport it operates. In this case, CAA should have ability as last resort to remove this faulty Aircraft, but off course they should bill PIA for this removal service.
