The air-hostess of a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight has “gone missing” in France.

According to the administration of the flag carrier, 30-year-old Shazia Saeed was part of the crew on PIA’s April 6 Sialkot-Paris flight.

“She was found missing when the Paris-Lahore flight was scheduled to leave for its destination on Tuesday. The PIA station manager in Paris reported the matter to the authorities there,” a PIA spokesperson was quoted as saying.


According to Dawn, the Lahore-based hostess may seek asylum in Europe and in that case, PIA may remove her from service.

The disappearance of PIA flight crew members in Europe and North America is not new as in September 2018, a hostess, Fareeha Mukhtar, who was earlier barred from traveling on international routes, went missing in Canada.

Mukhtar was suspended from service in 2015 over allegations of smuggling currency and mobile phones.

She was later traced in Toronto where she was staying with former air hostess Mahira who had also disappeared two years ago.
