It's a leased aircraft so it will be returned to lessor I believe. Shaheen doesn't own it so that it may be scapped.

I suppose right now lessor doesn't know what to do with the plane. Probably will pay park rent at KHI airport and when someone wants to lease it or scrap it, it will come back in action. KHI parking must be cheaper than other airports around the world + money spent flying it there.

PIA can't use it due to aviation policy and this aircraft 24 years old. Aircastle, which owns this craft, submitted 4 a333 aircraft in recent PIA bidding.

On March 3, AP-BKN is expected to depart from Amsterdam as Shaheen Air ferry flight NL-5 to Kansas City International Airport, USA.

The A330 reportedly arrived in Amsterdam in basic colours of Shaheen Air without Shaheen fuselage titles.
