It must be dry lease rather than wet lease. I read it a few month's ago and as far as I remember, they were supposed come from early 2004.

Hello OD720, Right now i am trying to find more info on that, and i found some. I found this information from http://geocities.com/fly_pia/news and http://www.geocities.com/fly_pia/fleet


"Wet lease from Airbus for a period of 10 years with an option to purchase, at end of agreement. First 4 a/c are to join the fleet in Nov 04."


"Recently PIA signed a lease agreement for six Airbus A310-300 aircraft from Airbus for a period of 10 years. The aircraft are P&W engine powered with former operators being Air Jamaica and Aeroflot. The first three will join sometime in Nov-Dec 03. Further details are to follow."

Does anyone know how old those A310-300's are?

I think PIA is going to use them on Hajj flights. Last time PIA used 3x Boeing 747-200/300 and 3x A300-B4 for the hajj flights. I think that they are going to buy these A310-300's because they are selling some of their old A300, i think they are selling 8 of the A300, i am not sure. As a part of re-newing their fleet they are going to be retiring two 747-200s, eight A300s and eleven F-27s in 2003; two 747 combis in 2006; three 747-300s in 2008; and seven 737-300s in 2010 and 2011. So they would need these A310's.
