IBNS-CMEDIA: A Pakistan International Airlines cabin crew member, who was on a flight from Lahore to Canada, was suspended after she was briefly detained by customs authorities on arrival in Toronto for carrying the passport of an unrelated person, media reports said.

Hina Sani was detained along with two other crew members who were also on duty with her on flight PK-789, reported Dawn News.

The three crew members were later allowed to travel back to Pakistan following investigations.

Later, the PIA management suspended Sani and announced it would take further action in line with the Canadian customs’ investigation report, the Pakistani newspaper reported.

PIA spokesman Abdullah Hafeez Khan told Dawn News that the airline management was in touch with the Canadian authorities and cooperating with them in the case.

He further said the suspended crew member would face legal and departmental action in the light of the Canadian authorities inquiry report.
