Sindh High Court has given stay orders to Shaheen Air International against Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority orders issued via a letter dated 13 July 2018. The letter stated that “Owing to non-payment of nearly Rs1.5 billion dues, Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority decided to suspend all its services and facilities from all airports of the country to all international flights of Shaheen Air International except Pakistan-Saudi Arabia-Pakistan sector from 16 July 2018.”Today the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority issued a statement and said that “CAA has not suspended its services and facilities to Shaheen Air International for its Domestic and Saudi Arab sector Flights.”

Shaheen Air’s Director Marketing, Zohaib Hassan stated that, “SAI has challenged the CAA’s letter of 13 July 2018 which was issued in patent breach of CAA’s own laws particularly Rule 373 of the Civil Aviation Rules 1994. CAA being a regulator of all the airlines has been treating Shaheen Air discriminately.”

Zohaib Hassan further said that “SAI has already acted religiously upon its payment plan and Honorable court also reaffirm after SAI produced its substantiation.”
