RAWALPINDI: As part of its drive to add more aircraft to its fleet, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has acquired a narrow-body Airbus A320 and it has arrived in Islamabad, a spokesperson for the national carrier said on Saturday.

With this addition, the PIA now has 32 aircraft in its fleet, including 13 Airbus planes.

Last year, the national carrier invited a tender for acquiring four aircraft, out of which three have already arrived while the last one will come in the next few days, the spokesperson added. The first aircraft arrived in April, followed by the second in July.

The spokesperson said that the arrival of new modern aircraft with improved cabin facilities would help the airline to provide better travel facilities to the passengers.

The aircraft will be operated on domestic, regional, and Gulf routes.
