The pilot spotted “something over 1,000 feet above his aircraft, which was at an altitude of 35,000 feet, and he made a video which was circulating on social media”, the flag carrier`s spokesperson was further quoted as saying.
“It is too early to say for sure what he had actually witnessed. It cannot necessarily be a flying saucer,” he said, adding that the incident was being looked into as per the standard operating procedures.
In a separate report, Geo News said the object was “extremely bright” despite the presence of sunlight.
