Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) continues to implement its ‘business plan’ as four more high-tech planes will be added to its fleet in February 2022, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Tuesday.
Quoting sources, the channel reported that all these new planes which were airbuses-320 would be hired on lease. With the addition of these planes, the number of airbuses in the PIA’s fleet would reach 18, they added.
Presently, the national flag carrier had 11 airbuses, 12 Boeing-777 and six ATR planes in its fleet, they informed.
Sources further disclosed that under its business plan, the PIA had set the target to increase the number of airbuses and Boeing planes to 44.
