NATO refuses to pay Navigation Charges to Civil Aviation Authority
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) – which has been using Pakistan’s airspace for free since the commencement of the war on terror in 2001 – refused to pay charges to Civil Aviation.
The Civil Aviation Authority has abolished the matter of navigation charges forever.
The NATO officials refuse the Civil Aviation Authority to pay even a single penny. “Being an ally in the Afghan war in 2001, the Pakistani government had exempted the NATO from the payment of navigational charges,” the officials said.
Sources said that the NATO’s transport airplanes have been using Pakistan’s airspace since 2001 and NATO had to pay Pakistan’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) US$ 22 billion.
The Senate Standing Committee was informed after 14 years that the NATO had been using Pakistan’s airspace for free since the commencement of the war on terror in 2001, after which the Committee directed the CAA to contact NATO in this regard.
