About this Order

This consent order concerns violations of 14 CFR Part 259 and 49 U.S.C. § 41712 involving the failure of Pakistan International Airlines Corporation (PIA) to adhere to the assurances in its contingency plan for lengthy tarmac delays that the carrier would not permit an international flight to remain on the tarmac for more than four hours without providing passengers an opportunity to deplane. This order directs PIA to cease and desist from future similar violations of Part 259 and section 41712 and assesses the carrier $150,000 in civil penalties.
