LAHORE: Pakistan International Airlines Flight PK-759 was halted at the Lahore Airport on Sunday and the passengers were offloaded, after its fire alarm system malfunctioned.
The flight was going from Lahore to Jeddah.
PIA spokesperson Mashood Tajwar said the plane hadn’t caught fire and dismissed news reports to the effect as ‘misunderstood’. The fire alarm went off, he said, but it wasn’t due to a fire.
He explained that the fire warning system wasn’t working properly, falsely indicating that there was a fire.
