In yet another concerning incident, a member of the Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) cabin crew has reportedly disappeared while on duty upon landing in Canada, as reported by news agency Dawn on Tuesday.

Maryam Raza, who arrived in Toronto on PIA flight PK-782 from Islamabad on Monday, failed to report for duty on the return flight, PK-784 to Karachi.

The discovery was made when authorities opened her hotel room, finding her uniform alongside a note that simply read, ‘Thank you, PIA’.

Raza, a seasoned member of the national flag carrier with 15 years of service, was assigned to the flight from Islamabad to Toronto.

This marks the second instance this year of a PIA stewardess disappearing upon arrival in Canada, according to the airline’s spokesperson.

Officials attribute this concerning trend to the accommodating nature of Canadian law, which allows for asylum applications post-entry into the country.

Last month, a similar occurrence was reported when an air hostess failed to report for the return flight after reaching Canada.

This is not an isolated incident, as last year saw at least seven PIA cabin crew members going missing in Canada while on duty.

The spokesperson for the airline highlighted that one crew member who absconded while on duty some years ago has since settled in Canada and now offers advice to other crew members considering seeking asylum.

In response to these alarming developments, PIA management has been working closely with Canadian authorities to prevent such incidents in the future.
