Did Airblue not have agreement with Turkish Technic for all their maintenance and checks on aircrafts? Unless it has expired.

airblue also has an agreement with Switzerland's SR Technics. The agreement runs until 2022 and covers the maintenance and overhaul of the CFM56-5B engines used on Airblue’s Airbus A320 fleet.

On July 2, airblue Airbus A321 aircraft registration AP-BMM arrived in Sharjah as ferry flight PA9001 from Islamabad completed in 4 hours & 27 minutes. Strangely, for some reason, maximum altitude gained by the aircraft was 10,550 feet. Maybe due to some technical issue the aircraft did not fly at higher altitude.
