[11] One of the pilots told the controller, "we are returning back, sir, we have lost engines." [18] This is supported by the conversation between the aircraft and air traffic control which indicates that the aircraft was constantly losing altitude.

[5] ATC confirmed to the pilot that he was cleared to use either of the airport's two runways, requesting, "Confirm your attempt on belly? "[6][13] According to PIA's CEO, Arshad Malik, a technical fault prompted the aircraft to make a go-around rather than land, even though both runways were available. Zwei Tage nach dem Absturz gab es Presseberichte, in denen ein Beamter der pakistanischen CAA bekannt gab, dass die Maschine vermutlich beim ersten Anflug ohne ausgefahrenes Fahrwerk die Landebahn berührte, woraufhin die Triebwerke beschädigt wurden. [18] The Civil Aviation Authority had declared the aircraft fit for flight until 5 November. [21], The narrow streets and alleys comprising the area inhibited the rescue services.

Konstruktionsbedingt schleiften in diesem Fall nicht die Triebwerke, sondern die Rumpfunterseite über die Landebahn. [14], The aircraft had made an initial aborted landing attempt.

[3], Ein vorläufiger Untersuchungsbericht des pakistanischen Aircraft Accident Investigation Board (AAIB) wurde am 24.

[8] Die Piloten meldeten Luftnotlage (Mayday), woraufhin die Flugsicherung ihnen eine Freigabe für die Landebahnen 25L und 25R erteilte. [4]:12 The contact with the runway may have caused substantial damage to the engines' critical components located on the underside, consequently leading to failure.

The EASA stated that the decision could be appealed. Der Flugschreiber soll nun Erkenntnisse zur Ursache liefern. This made it impossible for the aircraft to maintain altitude, causing it to crash during its return to the airfield. Auf der Landebahn fand man auf einer Länge von rund 760 Meter (2500 Fuß) Schleifspuren, die höchstwahrscheinlich von den Triebwerken stammten. Die Piloten deaktivierten daraufhin den Autopiloten, fuhren die Störklappen aus und leiteten einen steilen Sinkflug mit einer Sinkgeschwindigkeit von über 3.000 Fuß/Minute ein, um noch auf den vorgesehenen Gleitpfad der Landebahn 25L zu kommen. One of the pilots responded again by stating that he was satisfied and able to handle the situation, and that he was prepared for landing. Der Airbus prallte noch zwei weitere Male auf die Landebahn. [6] The pandemic had already stretched the healthcare resources of the city and the crash intensified the burden. Automatische Warnungen wie "pull up" (zieh hoch) oder "too low, gear" (niedrige Höhe ohne Fahrwerk) des Flugzeuges wurden nicht beachtet. At 14:30 the plane was 15 nautical miles (28 km; 17 mi) from Karachi, at Makli, flying at an altitude of 10,000 feet (3,000 m) instead of the recommended 7,000 feet (2,100 m), when ATC issued its first warning to reduce altitude. Laut Aussage eines PIA-Pressesprechers war das Fahrwerk beim ersten Anflug nicht oder nicht vollständig ausgefahren. It eventually attempted to land without the landing gear extended.
