Pak vows to probe plane crash as soon as possible
Islamabad: Pakistan Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira has vowed to finish the investigation into the plane crash as soon as possible, which claimed all 127 lives on board.
“We will make sure that there is no human delay… We will try to arrange for the compensation as well,” he said.
According to the initial report, the plane had been descending at a speed of 500 kilometres per hour before it eventually crashed before its planned landing at the Benazir Bhutto International Airport, killing all 127 people on board.
According to reports, the plane, which was in a landing position, should have been at a height of 1,500 to 1,700 feet above ground, but was only at 200 feet and was travelling at 500 kilometres per hour.
The plane was 10 kilometres away from the runway, and considering this, it was flying too low and too fast to make the landing.
Bhoja Air started domestic operations in Pakistan in 1993 and eventually expanded to international flights to the United Arab Emirates in 1998. The company suspended operations in 2001 due to financial difficulties but resumed them in 2012.
