LAHORE - Inspectors of USA Transportation Security Administration (TSA) have arrived in Pakistan to check security arrangements at the time when the PIA is to resume its Karachi-Lahore-Chicago flights after ten days on June 2, 2010, sources in CAA said on Saturday. It is worth mentioning here that TSA inspectors have inspected Karachi airport and reviewed the security arrangements. They would visit Allama Iqbal International Airport, Lahore on May 24 (tomorrow) to monitor the security arrangements made by the airline and CAA. The security inspectors would stay in Lahore till May 28 to watch scanning, briefing, search and other procedures of the passengers travelling on America bound flights. On May 28, the inspectors would debrief the CAA and PIA officials at Lahore and then would leave for Islamabad where after staying for a week they would fly back to their homeland to report their Ministry of Aviation. An officer of CAA said, We are confident as our security arrangements are always updated and we are always vigilant, our Airport Security Force is meeting international security standards. It is also noteworthy that in the past PIA has purchased B-777 LR and B-777 ER only to avail direct and non-stop flights from Pakistan to America and other European countries but American Homeland Security Department did not permit the PIA to avail direct flights to America. Our American bound flights have to fly to America as transit flights which stay at any European destination for further security checks and search. However, spokesman of national flag carrier said that it was not any special security check but a routine matter and American inspectors were performing their duties in coordination with the PIA security department. A CAA senior officer from Lahore said that our security situation at International level was not being considered so good and in the recent past certain International Airlines have wrap-up their operation from Pakistan including Lufthansa Airlines, British Airlines and Singapore Airlines. He said that American would never allow us direct flights even being satisfied with our security arrangements as they had also done all these inspections in the past repeatedly.
