KARACHI: The Department for Transport (DfT) of the British Security Agency will visit Pakistan on May 30 to undertake security audits of the country’s three major airports.
The security of three main international airports in Islamabad, Lahore, and Karachi will be scrutinized as part of British Security’s evaluation programme. The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has already completed the essential preparations for the Department for Transport’s (DfT) visit to the airport.
The British delegation will conduct audits of several areas, such as airport security, flight chefs, and ground handling. The airport managers will provide the delegation with information about their individual airports.
The delegation’s mission is to investigate the safety of direct flights from Islamabad, Lahore, and Karachi to the United Kingdom. The delegation will oversee the screening of passengers’ items, the transfer of bags on the aircraft, and the operation of other security equipment.
According to Civil Aviation, the British team was planning to visit Pakistan on July 10, but due to a scheduling change, the delegation will arrive on May 30.
