PIA dropping two routes

Post by globetrotter » 05 Nov 2013, 16:34

According to the latest PIA will end service to Bangkok and Hong Kong from 20th Nov, flights are operated from Islamabad and Lahore as LHE-ISB-BKK-HKG with A310 twice a week, previously also operated with 747-200M some years ago, HKG came online in 2000 and BKK in 1967.

Earlier this year PK had ended services to the Afghan city of Kandahar and Zahedan in Iran, followed by Frankfurt and Amsterdam in September.

They are now planning to resume HKG, might operate with A320 from summer, they are leasing six A319 and four 320 starting from April.

Currently four 738 from Corendon and Travel Service are leased temporarily doing domestic and Gulf routes in the respective carriers own liveries, Corendon aircraft wear .com and .be titles, TS aircraft livery are unconfirmed but they seem to be in the I love Prague and Smart Wings schemes according to corresponding resgistrations in photo databases of various sites.

They have been in LBA since three almost five years, yes its nonstop to/from Islamabad, they had planned to introduce a 772 on the route last summer then postponed till winter but then didn't go ahead with that. LBA was supposed to end a couple of years ago but was retained after someone used their clout to inflluence the decision.
