LAHORE: Passengers and flight staff were injured when a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) plane made a faulty landing at the Lahore airport, Express News reported on Friday.

The plane was on a routine flight from Islamabad in bad weather, but initial reports from the control tower state the weather could not have been the main cause of the crash landing.

A technical fault has been suggested as a possibility but nothing has been confirmed yet.

Rescue teams and Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) personnel reached the scene.

Minor injuries were reported among the flight staff and passengers sitting towards the front end of the plane.

Earlier today, a Lahore-bound PIA plane made an emergency landing in Quetta due to technical problems.

It was earlier reported that almost a third of PIA flights have suffered delays this year due to technical and administrative reasons, dealing a severe blow to the national flag carrier’s business.
