In Continuation to PNSC statement on crew change on 8th June 2020, where it was stated that PNSC Management is fully committed to overcome the global issue of crew change in the prevailing extraordinary situation. In manifestation to the above, PNSC madea deviation in the voyage plan of MV MULTAN to arrive Karachi Anchorage for effecting crew change at homeport on AM 1st July 2020. Prior to arriving at this decision of deviation in voyage plan, all possible options including special and chartered flights were evaluated; however same did not materialize due to port state restrictions associated with COVID-19 protocols internationally.
This speaks of the fact that how much PNSC Management values its seafarers. PNSC being the National Flag Carrier is fully focused and committed to national requirements and well being of seafarers without compromising sustained commercial activities.
