The advisory has been issued for all Pakistan-registered carriers and has been recommended to all the UN agencies.
The advisory issued by the UN Security Management System (UNSMS) said, “Due to an ongoing investigation of the CAA [Civil Aviation Authority] Pakistan…due to dubious licenses caution is advised on the use of Pakistan-registered air operators.
