Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will establish an Airbus A320 landing gear overhaul facility at its engineering base in Karachi.

The carrier says the facility is "expected to be completed later this year" and will provide cost savings of "more than $350,000 for each landing gear overhaul".

"The addition of (the) A320 to this facility will save PIA a substantial amount of money, while generating additional revenue for the airline," PIA adds.

PIA's MRO facility in Karachi already has capabilities to overhaul landing gears for the A310, A300, Boeing 747, 777, as well as ATR 42 and 72 turboprops.

Flightglobal's Fleets Analyzer database shows that PIA operates a fleet of 37 aircraft, 11 of which are A320s.
