PIA to induct two aircraft in its fleet

KARACHI:The Pakistan International Airlines has decided to induct two new aircraft in its fleet in first quarter of 2019.

The A320 aircraft already under the evaluation phase would be acquired on dry lease strictly in accordance with PPRA Rules, said a press release issued here on Saturday.

The decision was taken in an executive meeting chaired by Chairman & CEO Mohammad Saqib Aziz.

The meeting reviewed the performance of airline during last months. It was discussed in the meeting that due to increasing demand in market, enhancement of fleet has become necessary as the present fleet was not sufficient to cater to the demand.

Saqib Aziz said the acquisition of two aircraft will certainly help PIA in expanding its network and passenger base as well.

These aircraft would mainly be used on domestic and regional routes including Gulf and South East Asian Region, he said.
