The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has banned the use of mobile phones at Bacha Khan International Airport, Peshawar in the aftermath of the viral video showing passengers coming out of luggage conveyor belt.
The circular titled ‘use of mobile phones in restricted areas’ strictly directed employees against using mobile phones in lounges and aprons, adding that strict action will be taken in case of any violation.
Any non-compliance of the instructions may result in confiscation of Airport Entry Pass and the matter will be taken up with the higher authorities of the concerned department/functionary.
The employees have been directed to follow the instructions during duty hours. Earlier this month, the CAA had also imposed a ban on eating paan, gutka, and naswaar etc. at Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport.
You can take a look at the video which resulted in the mobile phone ban at the airport:
