Skyway Travel

Transport Manager of Bradford based Skyway Travel, Fazal Karim Ali, has been disqualified from applying for or holding an operator’s licence in Great Britain for a period of seven years. The company’s licence has been revoked with effect from 23:59, 21 November 2014. Mr Ali’s wife, Farmida Akhtar, has also been disqualified. Traffic Commissioner, Kevin Rooney, said, ‘Mr Fazal Karim Ali and Mrs Farmida Akhtar have a very poor history as operators. It is without doubt that I find that Mr Ali’s lack of honesty requires me to disqualify him, and for a lengthy period. Given the history of his wife in providing a front for him, it is appropriate that her disqualification matches his. Further, Mr Ali has quickly shown himself once again to fail to have what it takes to be an effective transport manager, with near disastrous consequences. This is, in effect, Mr Ali’s fifth licence and the fourth to be revoked. The time has come for his career as a PSV operator to come to an end before someone is killed.’
