Pegasus Airlines to secure PIA B737 wet-lease deal

Posted 29 December 2016 · Add Comment

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) is in talks with Pegasus Airlines over the proposed wet-lease of a quartet of B737-800s, reports ch-aviation.

 

A team from the Turkish carrier was in Pakistan last week regarding the proposed contract. Earlier this year, PIA issued a Request For Proposals (RFP) to all eligible parties for the wet-lease of four aircraft for three months (extendable) with 275 guaranteed block hours per month from December onwards. 

Bid evaluation documents indicate that Pegasus Airlines' proposal - B737-800s was named the preferred bid, followed by Corendon Airlines, Travel Service Airlines, AtlasGlobal and Bulgaria Air. 

The evaluation of an RFP for the dry-lease of four similarly configured narrowbody aircraft on six-year contracts beginning in 2017, has yet to be released.
