PIA Fleet ATR 42/72 Details and Pictures

PIA Fleet ATR 42/72 Details and Pictures. On current fleet, Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) operates 4 turboprop aircraft ATR 42/72 ( 3 ATR 42-500 and 1 ATR 72-500).

PIA uses its ATR aircraft primarily on domestic and regional routes within Pakistan and neighboring countries.

In December 2016, one of PIA’s ATR 42-500 aircraft crashed near Havelian, Pakistan, killing all 47 people on board.

An investigation found that the crash was caused by a technical fault with the aircraft’s engines.

Since then, PIA has been taking steps to address the safety concerns related to its aging ATR fleet.

In May 2021, the airline signed a lease agreement with a leasing company for five new ATR 72-600 aircraft, which are expected to replace some of its older ATR 72-500 aircraft.

In addition, PIA has been undertaking maintenance and safety checks on its ATR aircraft, and has reportedly retired some of its older ATR 42-500 planes from service.
