Flight attendant Aijaz Ali Shah was officially declared missing after he failed to show up for the return flight he was supposed to board on Sunday.
A Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight attendant has reportedly gone missing after arriving in Toronto last week. Reports claimed that flight attendant Aijaz Ali Shah reportedly went missing in Canada soon after appearing for immigration at the Toronto airport. This was the third such incident this year, despite measures taken by PIA to stop such occurrences, Dawn reported.
“One of our crew, Mr. Ijaz Shah, who was working as an operations crew on PK781 of October 14, went missing after the flight,” CTV News Toronto quoted Abdullah H Khan, PIA’s general manager of corporate communications, as saying.
A PIA flight from Islamabad landed at Toronto Pearson International Airport on October 14 at 4:00 PM. Shah was officially declared missing after he failed to show up for a return flight he was supposed to take on Sunday, CTV News Toronto reported.
Meanwhile, the PIA management has also informed the Canadian immigration authorities about the ‘missing’ crew member. Shah, a resident of Bahria Town, Rawalpindi, joined the national flagship 20 years ago, Dawn reported.
The report added that after reaching the airport, Shah quickly moved to the Canadian immigration counter as he was the first person in line, but then disappeared as none of the crew members could find him again at the airport. Shortly after Shah went missing at the airport, the other crew members waited for him in their bus for about two hours, searching for him at the airport.
