Advertisements in newspapers most likely will appear within next few days.

BTW, the Boeing 777 is shown in an old/hybrid livery.

Just a month ago they did float almost similar Tender, now they are doing the same. Any idea why is that?

Maybe the airline did not have money to induct aircraft under bid invitation that appeared in September 29 newspapers or the aircraft offered under that bid invitation did not meet bidding conditions. Evaluation report for that bids invitation has not appeared on PIA website, so far.

November 2 was the last day for bids submission under that bids invitation:

Seems PIA is going to return the four wet leased VietJet Air Airbus A320s before the induction of four dry leased narrow-body (most likely A320 family aircraft) under this tender.

According to airline's spokesperson, the wet leased VietJet Air A320s will be returned in a month or two.
“(Upcoming) narrow-body aircraft will replace four A320s in the fleet,” PIA spokesman Mashood Tajwar told The Express Tribune on Monday.

He said jets were being acquired to fill the gap that would emerge after the return of four A320s to Vietnam.

PIA had acquired the four narrow-body jets on wet lease for a period of six months in August to run its Hajj operations. “We will return the aircraft in one go in the next one to two months,” the spokesman said.
