The complete plane or just the engines? According to German newspapers, only the engines were sold to a Turkish company, and the plane was purchased by Leipzig-Halle-Airport.

More than 200,000/- euros were demanded by Leipzig Halle Airport as PIA Airbus A310-300 (AP-BEQ) parking charges.

After negotiations, the parking charges demand was brought down to 130,000/- euros.

The A310 airframe/structure was handed over to Leipzig Halle Airport instead of parking charges payment.

Abbas bhai, incidentally do we know if PIA was compensated more for the A310 that went to Leipzig versus the A310s currently retired/parked at Karachi?

Supreme Court wonders whether sale of PIA Airbus is national offence

Nasir Iqbal

Updated February 13, 2020

ISLAMABAD:
The mysterious sale of a PIA Airbus caught the attention of the Supreme Court on Wednesday when it questioned whether the sale of the plane — a public property — amounted to national offence or not.

Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed expressed surprise over the casual attitude on part of the national flag carrier to pursue the matter and asked whether such incidents have ever happened in other airlines of the world where the chief executive officer (CEO) sells off a plane just like that.

Senior counsel Salman Akram Raja, who was representing the PIA’s Board of Directors, however assured the court that he will furnish a comprehensive report about the aircraft, but informed it that the matter was already under the scrutiny of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). The counsel also agreed to the immense need to change the culture in the PIA.

“How can the former CEO leave the country in the first place,” Justice Ijaz-ul-Ahsan observed, adding that who authorised the sale of the aircraft also wondering why it was done in a discreet manner.

That person must be in jail, the chief justice regretted but here nobody was bothered about the aircraft which was the public property.

“You cannot secure your aircraft from your own employee,” the chief justice observed also wondering whether NAB would go to Germany to retrieve the plane.

The chief justice also wanted to know about the steps taken to get the aircraft back.
