The irresponsible behaviour by owners of bird sanctuaries and
those who dump their garbage near the airport caused not only loss in millions
to PIA but also put the lives of passengers at risk.
Pakistan International Airline’s latest addition to its fleet, was damaged today
due to a bird strike. These birds reside in sanctuaries and loom around the
garbage dumped near the airport. They have been approached time and again on
this issue causes millions in damage to the PIA aircraft.
We are the first to scream and shout when PIA services are not up to par, so we
now need to raise our voice when our national asset is being damaged due to the
disregard of those who refuse to move away the sanctuaries and not dump their
garbage near the airport. They are willingly putting the lives of all the
passengers travelling from the airport at a huge risk. Today, the expertise of
the pilot diverted the plane and landed it safely, but the negligence of these
people dumping garbage and housing sanctuaries near the airport can cost lives.
Something needs to be done and done now. These bird sanctuaries and garbage
disposals near the airports need to be shifted away immediately. We need to
collectively call for responsible behaviour by our industrialist, those who
claim to care about humanity and citizens of Pakistan. They should not be
allowed to continue playing with the lives of people and causing millions of
rupees of damage to airlines. The buck as to stop with them!
