As many as six PIA flights were delayed on Tuesday owing to protest of the employees’ unions, the spokesman for the national flag carrier said in a statement on Wednesday.
He said that the flights were delayed owing to the protest by the PIA’s unions.
“Due to industrial dispute (protest by PIA unions) six PIA flights were delayed yesterday as protesters entered the main data centre at PIA headquarters pulling out cables and shutting down computer systems”, the spokesman said.
Due to this, PIA’s entire system remained suspended for nearly three hours, he added.
“PIA management has requested unions’ leaders to ensure peace during protest as any damage to the system can have serious consequences for the passengers as well as the airline,” the spokesman added in the statement.
