A second Pakistani flight attendant working for the country’s national airline has gone missing after landing in Mississauga. This  follows a similar incident that occurred last month. 

Flight attendant Maryam Raza with Pakistan International Airlines had been aboard Flight PK 782, which had flown from Islamabad International Airport to Pearson International Airport, according to Insauga.com.

She was reported missing after she didn’t show up for the scheduled return flight from Pearson back to Karachi. 

A note was discovered in her hotel room which read “Shukria PIA,” in Urdu, which translates to, “Thank you, PIA.” 

Her disappearance marks the second of its kind, following the disappearance of a PIA flight attendant on Jan. 19, 2024. 

Two other PIA flight attendants were reported missing in December after arriving at Pearson from Lahore, Pakistan.

Authorities also know of at least five other disappearances of a similar nature who worked for PIA in 2023 after landing at Pearson.

Certain reports suggest that the disappearances may be connected to flight crews having low salaries and the airline’s plan to become privatized.

The airline denies these claims, and instead blames the Trudeau government for its lax asylum policies. 

However, PIA did raise the minimum wage for flight crews travelling to Canada recently. 

Abdullah Hafeez Khan, a spokesperson for PIA told The Media Line that the airline has created a task force to investigate these disappearances. 

Khan said that if found, the missing flight attendants will face “strict departmental action” and “serious legal action,” should they return to Pakistan.

Similar incidents have been reported by PIA in Paris and other parts of Europe over the past several years, beginning as early as 2018.
