The issue of 'dubious' licences drew world attention after Aviation Minister Ghulam Sarwar Khan revealed in the National Assembly that there were 860 active pilots in the country and 260 pilots had not sat their exams themselves and almost 30 per cent of the pilots had fake or improper licence and did not have flying experience, Dawn news reported.
Shortly afterwards, the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) grounded 107 pilots suspected of having fake licences and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) started verification of their licences.
Khan also announced that five senior officials of the CAA had been sacked over the scandal and they could be prosecuted.
The issue also caught the attention of other countries and airlines where Pakistani pilots were employed.
The countries, which grounded the Pakistani pilots and asked the Aviation Division to verify their credentials, included the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Vietnam, Turkey and Bahrain.
On Friday, EthioPIa also asked the Pakistan government to verify the licences of Pakistani pilots serving there.
The European Union Air Safety Agency has also announced suspension of PIA authorisation for six months.
