The announcement was made through PIA’s official Twitter handle. A picture of the aircraft, grounded at the #Karachi airport, was also attached to the tweet.
According to the reports, the airplane departed from Istanbul and reached Karachi at 7:00 AM
An official told media that the airbus has been bought on a dry lease – leasing arrangement whereby an aircraft financing entity provides an aircraft without a crew – for a period of six years. He said that the plane will be added to the fleet in the first week of December after the completion of the technical requirements.
Following the addition of the aircraft, PIA now has 12 A320 planes. The total number of planes in the airline’s fleet now reached 33
