Press Release


Karachi; July 21, 2016

PIA is in negotiations with Sri Lankan Airlines for the wet lease of four A-330 aircraft.

Pakistan's national carrier had advertised for leasing wide body aircraft last month and Sri Lanka's national carrier expressed interest in leasing out its four new wide body A-330 aircraft to PIA. A high-level team of PIA led by CEO, Mr. Bernd Hildenbrand recently visited Colombo to inspect these aircraft and to negotiate a contract.

These planes would primarily be used for PIA's premier service which is being launched from 14th August 2016. With new aircraft, more professional crew and improved service standards, the new service aims at providing an altogether different experience to passengers. This service will go a long way in helping PIA regain its market share both domestically as well as internationally.
