The PIA official further added that no passenger is allowed to transport such amount of cash without apprising the airline first. In addition to this, the passenger must purchase an extra seat because the amount such as this cannot be carried in luggage or cabin baggage and the passenger is seated next to the cash.

However, no passenger from the ill-fated PK-8303 had bought an extra seat. As of now, 3 people have contacted PIA authorities and claimed the ownership of the cash. The spokesperson didn’t reveal any details of the persons who came forward to claim the ownership of the cash.
