KARACHI:

 

A Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) female flight attendant — assigned on a Canada-bound flight — was detained at the Toronto airport after multiple passports were found in her possession.

Hina Sani, who landed in Toronto on PIA flight PK-789, was held after Canadian immigration authorities found several passports belonging to different individuals in her luggage.

Travelling with passports other than your own is an international crime.

According to sources, Sani was previously warned for bringing prohibited items to Canada.

Apart from being an air hostess, Sani is also known as a fashion model on social media.

The sources said seven other flight attendants, who were with Sani on the flight, were designated as no-flyers by the airline for Toronto.

They added that they were granted special permission by the PIA deputy general manager of Flight Services with his own ID — a step out of routine.

After questioning the other two air hostesses on the flight, Canadian authorities released them. They were allowed to leave for the hotel.

According to a PIA spokesperson, the airline was aware of the incident and in touch with the Canadian authorities.

The spokesperson added that the PIA would fully cooperate with the Canadian authorities and take any legal action if required.

In the year 2022, a PIA flight steward slipped away in Canada after the airline’s flight from Islamabad reached Toronto.
