The aircraft has been leased from ALAFCO – a Kuwait-based aircraft-leasing company – and arrived at Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport on Thursday.
The Airbus was built nine years ago and took its first flight on July 22, 2010. It was previously used by a Saadi airline.
This will be 12th Airbus 320 in PIA’s fleet; the airline is expecting another delivery (of AP-BMY) next month. The airline uses this super-quiet, fuel-efficient airplane on its domestic as well as international routes.
