KARACHI: The technical committee of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) on Saturday declared a passenger boarding bridge at the Jinnah International Airport, Karachi as “dangerous”.
The committee has recommended an immediate replacement of the bridge to prevent any incident.
The CAA had launched an investigation about safety standards of boarding bridges at different airports after one such bridge collapsed at the new Islamabad Airport.
On Jan 3, the CAA confirmed before a parliamentary committee that the passenger boarding bridge that collapsed at the Islamabad airport last year was because of a design fault, a private news channel reported.
The foreign firm that had installed a bridge at the Karachi airport has been summoned by the CAA on January 14.
Officials of the CAA say that any incident could occur if the replacement was not made.
