No fasts for PIA pilots during the holy month of Ramazan as in-flight safety protocol￼
Local publications reported that #PakistanInternationalAirlines had banned its pilots and cabin crew from fasting during Ramazan as part of their in-flight safety measures. #PIA’s General Manager Aamir Bashir issued the in-flight safety measures that state that fasting refrains from drinking and eating, eventually resulting in decreased performance of human beings.
Aamir Bashir issued safety measures quoted, “A proper diet is imperative to fulfill the physical and psychological demands of flying. Focusing on diet and its link with flight performance can avoid human errors leading to plane crashes.” In another initiative, the Pakistan International Airlines’ management has given another option to the pilots of #PIA and allowed them to take leaves during the holy month of #Ramazan.
