She was on board flight PK-733 from Lahore to Paris on April 6, 2019, on request to the administration. She was due to return to Pakistan on April 9, 2019.
However, after landing in the French capital, the air hostess left her hotel without telling anyone. It was later revealed that she went to Belgium without her luggage.
Her colleagues stated that they did not know Shazia left as she did not inform them.
It was reported that Shazia left Paris and went to Belgium a day after arriving on the PIA flight from Lahore.

Sources have claimed that Shazia had requested the administration to book her duty on the flight from Lahore to Paris.
