The European Union Aviation Safety Agency banned Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) from flying to Europe for at least six months. The ban was announced after an enquiry into a PIA crash on 22 May, which killed 97 people in Karachi, alleged that 260 out of 860 PIA pilots had cheated on their exams but were still awarded licences by the Civil Aviation Authority. The government responded to the findings of the enquiry by firing five members of the Civil Aviation Authority and PIA grounded 150 of its pilots for cheating.
