With the addition of this aircraft, which arrived at The Jinnah International Airport this afternoon, the total number of aircraft in PIA’s fleet has risen to 38.

Commenting on the induction of another Boeing 777 aircraft, Chairman PIA stated that it is for the first time in the history of PIA that a series of modern aircraft have been added to the national flag carrier’s fleet in such a short period of time. He said that induction of the incoming aircraft would further improve the national airline’s passenger carrying capacity.

The aircraft, to be used for both long and short haul flights, would start operating after completion of all formalities later this month.
