The Department of Transportation of the United States has banned flights from state-owned Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) from operating on its territory following a scandal regarding fake pilot licenses.

PIA spokesperson Abdullah Hafeez told EFE on Friday that the US had revoked the airline's permission to fly on its soil from Jul.2 onwards, but the decision was not made public until now.EFE-EPA
