A Pakistan International Airlines Airbus A320 has reportedly crashed near Karachi. The Airbus A320 aircraft, which according to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), was said to be carrying 90 passengers and eight crew, was on route from Lahore to Jinnah International Airport.

According to report, the pilots had declared a “may-day may-day” to air traffic control adding “we are proceeding direct, we have lost engines“. Shortly after, the aircraft crashed and burst into flames in the neighbourhood of the Malir Cantonment: Jinnah Garden (Model Colony), a residential area just east of the airport.

Many Footage shared on social media shows destroyed buildings, plumes of smoke and homes engulfed in flames.

The BBC, however, reports that emergency services are in attendance, and a statement by Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said Army Quick Reaction Force and Sindh Pakistan Rangers have arrived on site to assist in rescue efforts. There is no word yet on casualties.

A PIA spokesman said that the aircraft carried 99 passengers and 8 crew members.

Last communication between pilots and air traffic control:

ATC: appear to be turning left

Pilot: we are proceeding direct we have lost engines

ATC: runway available to land at 25

Pilot: Roger

Pilot: Sir Mayday Mayday Mayday Mayday Pakistan 8303

ATC: 8303 Roger both runways available to land

An eyewitness also narrates that an engine was on fire prior to the crash, saying,

“I saw the PIA plane with one engine on fire and suddenly there was blast and the aircraft fell on houses in the area. At least six to eight houses are on fire while rescue teams are struggle to make way through narrow streets to rescue people.”

Pakistani airline crash claims 98 lives
May 22, 2020

A passenger plane with 98 people on board crashed in a crowded neighborhood on the edge of the international airport near Pakistan’s southern port city of Karachi Friday after what appeared to be an engine failure during landing.

Mayor Wasim Akhtar said at least five or six houses were destroyed in the crash of the domestic flight operated by Pakistan International Airlines.

He said all those on board died, but two civil aviation officials later said that at least two people survived the crash. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to brief media.

Local TV stations reported that three people sitting in the front row of the aircraft survived and aired footage of a man on a stretcher they identified as Zafar Masood, the head of the Bank of Punjab. They reported that at least 11 bodies were recovered from the crash site and six people were injured. It was not immediately clear if the casualties were passengers.

Police wearing protective masks struggled to clear away crowds to allow a firetruck and an ambulance to move through the narrow streets toward the crash site, the air filled with dust and smoke. Police and soldiers cordoned off the area.

A transmission of the pilot’s final exchange with air traffic control, posted on the website, indicated he had failed to land and was circling around to make another attempt.

“We are proceeding direct, sir — we have lost engine,” a pilot said.

“Confirm your attempt on belly,” the air traffic controller said, offering a runway.

“Sir – mayday, mayday, mayday, mayday Pakistan 8303,” the pilot said before the transmission ended.

The aircraft arriving from the eastern city of Lahore was carrying 99 passengers and eight crew members, said Abdul Sattar Kokhar, spokesman Pakistan’s civil aviation authority.

Pakistan had resumed domestic flights earlier this week ahead of the Eid-al Fitr holiday marking the end of the Ramadan. Pakistan has been in a countrywide lockdown since mid-March to try to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

Witnesses said the Airbus A320 appeared to attempt to land two or three times before crashing in a residential area near Jinnah International Airport. The residential area on the edge of the airport, known as Model Colony, is poor and heavily congested.

A resident of the area, Abdul Rahman, said he saw the aircraft circle at least three times, appearing to try to land before it crashed into several houses.

Video circulated on social media appeared to show the aircraft flying low over a residential area with flames shooting from one of its engines.

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan tweeted: “Shocked & saddened by the PIA crash… Immediate inquiry will be instituted. Prayers & condolences go to families of the deceased.”

Airbus did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the crash. The flight from the northeastern city of Lahore typically lasts about an hour and a half.

Airworthiness documents showed the plane last received a government check on Nov. 1, 2019. PIA’s chief engineer signed a separate certificate April 28 saying all maintenance had been conducted. It said “the aircraft is fully airworthy and meets all the safety” standards.

Ownership records for the Airbus A320 showed China Eastern Airlines flew the plane from 2004 until 2014. The plane then entered PIA’s fleet, leased from GE Capital Aviation Services.

Perry Bradley, a spokesman for GE, said the firm was “aware of reports of the accident and is closely monitoring the situation.

Pakistan's civil aviation authority said the plane had 91 passengers and a crew of seven. 
At least two people aboard survived, according to the country's health department, revising an earlier statement that three were alive. But the other 95 passengers and crew are believed to have died.

Health ministry spokeswoman Meeran Yousuf told Al Jazeera by telephone that 80 people have died, with 48 bodies kept at Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre, Karachi's largest government hospital, and 32 at Civil Hospital Karachi, another major state-run hospital.
Faisal Edhi of the Edhi Welfare Trust said that around 25 to 30 residents whose houses were damaged by the plane have also been taken to the hospital, mostly with burn wounds.

The aircraft wings during the crash landing hit the houses in the residential colony before crashing down.
"At least 25 houses have been damaged in this incident,” Edhi said.
“The first priority is to rescue the people. The main hurdle is narrow streets and presence of ordinary people who gathered at the place after the crash but they have been dispersed,” the minister said.

According to BBC, the plane had attempted one landing but as it went round again lost its engines and issued a mayday call to traffic control.
The pilot reportedly said: 'We are proceeding direct, sir - we have lost engine'.
'Confirm your attempt on belly,' the air traffic controller said, offering a runway.
'Sir, mayday, mayday, mayday, mayday Pakistan 8303,' the pilot said before the transmission ended
A picture shared by plane enthusiasts shows that the aircraft suffered an apparent engine failure shortly before the crash. They claimed the Black scorch marks can be seen beneath each engine and the landing gear is still up.

Pakistani supermodel Zara Abid was on board the ill-fated Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) aircraft that crashed into a residential neighbourhood while on approach to the airport in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi.
The passengers’ list of the flight issued to the media, shows Zara Abid boarded the Airbus A320 passenger airliner that crashed before landing in Karachi.
Health ministry spokeswoman Meeran Yousuf told Al Jazeera by telephone that 80 people have died, with 48 bodies kept at Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre, Karachi's largest government hospital, and 32 at Civil Hospital Karachi, another major state-run hospital.
Yousuf said two survivors were being treated at the hospitals in Karachi, while 17 bodies have been identified so far.
At least six people who were on the ground when the airliner crashed into houses in the densely populated Model Colony area of Karachi, adjacent to the city's international airport, were being treated for their injuries, she added.
