PIA Fleet Plan : 2006-2011

Sun Feb 19, 2006 11:48 pm

The mail i received from Aerotransport.org , speednews chapter.

"PIA says Business Plan for 2006-2011 includes acquisition of 12 777s (has ordered 8 , leasing a 9th from ILFC) , 10 turboprops (ordered 7 ATR42-500s) , 3 A310Fs , 3 'new technology medium-capacity aircraft' , and 7 new technology narrowbodies'.It expects annual pax traffic growth of 8% and 12% for cargo."

Also read somewhere they are looking to lease immediatly 3 A310-300s or A300-600s.

I am a bit confused , as rumours are flotting , saying PIA has bought 747-8s.

Some comments

- The 3 777s they plan to purchase to reach 12 as they said will be 200ERs , 200LRs or 300ERs ?

- The medium-capacity aircraft = 787 or A350

- The 7 new technology narrow bodies = 737NG/A32X , or 737NNG/A32XNG ?

Sounds good, although the other day I heard Boeing were trying to see PIA the 747-8  Smile

Are PIA heading for an all Boeing fleet, or do they plan to be a bit of both? (I know they will have the A310F's)

What's the latest on the "new sceme" that was rumoured here?

Difficult to say if they wish to become an all Boeing fleet or if they will split their future orders.
No time date revealed for the future orders , so we only have to wait for the answer...........

Would like to know more about this 747-8 rumour , despite a threat has been opened on Airliners.net , no real answer.Maybe at the Singapore Air Show......
