Pakistan International Airlines is set to add yet another A330 aircraft in its premier service next month. According to the reports, it will be the second A330 aircraft that PIA will use for the route of London via PIA premier service. The new service was officially launched on 14th August in the previous month on London route.
While talking to APP, one of the sources said:
“All flights of London will be operated on airbus A-330 with the premier service”
It was also reported that PIA will be operating all London flights through A330 aircraft. To make it a success, third A330 will be inducted in PIA’s fleet soon possibly latest by February 2017.
At present, the premier service of PIA operates on alternate days from Lahore (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday) and Islamabad (Monday, Wednesday and Sunday). However, with the addition of another A330 aircraft, both the cities of Pakistan will operate London flights on daily basis.
