PIA has acquired three Airbus A330 aircrafts on wet leases from Srilankan Airlines. PIA is using these aircrafts for its Premier luxury air Service launched since 14 th August 2016 by the Prime Minister of Pakistan. There are six weekly flights, three each from Islamabad and Lahore to London.

PIA’s Premier Service gives a true 21st century travel experience and will set the benchmark for PIA to build on for the future.
The Boeing 777 family comprises of long-range, wide-body twin-engine airplanes. PIA was the first airline in the world to operate all the three variants of the 777 family: 777-200LR, 777-200ER and 777-300ER, all of them are well loved by PIA’s seasoned travelers for their spaciousness and comfort. PIA also holds the privilege of being the launch customer for 777-200LR, one of PIA’s aircraft which holds the record for the longest commercial jet flight in aviation history. At present PIA is serving destinations in USA, Canada, UK and Europe through its 777 fleet.
The Airbus A320 is one of the world’s favorite narrow-body short/medium haul jet airplane. By virtue of right-sized fuselage, it enhances comfort for passengers and at the same time enjoys the reputation of fuel-efficient aircraft. A320 aircraft mostly serve its domestic and regional routes.
This modern technology turbo prop is the latest type inducted in PIA’s fleet. PIA’s fleet of ATR42-500 and ATR72-500 aircrafts is configured in comfortable two class seating arrangement. This aircraft has enabled the airline to provide its valued customers the most convenient way to fly to far flung and remote destinations of the country which are sparsely served by other means of transport.
