A year after surviving the PK 8303 plane crash, Zafar Masud is trying to improve passenger safety and security

Last year in May, a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) passenger plane, carrying 99 people onboard, crashed in Karachi’s Model Colony near Jinnah International Airport.

Bank of Punjab (BOP) President Zafar Masud — one of the two people to survive the devastating crash — laments that since then, nothing has changed at a national level for improving passenger safety.

“I believe that we need to bring domestic flight standards at par with international ones and enforce standardised procedures to handle crashes and their aftermath,” he told Dawn.com.

“I believe that the entire ecosystem needs to be reviewed and revamped to ensure better safety and security standards,” he said.
