A Boeing 777 operated by Pakistan International Airlines has been impounded in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The news reports that the aircraft was seized by Malaysian authorities as a result of non-payment of lease obligations. 173 passengers and several crew members were on board the aircraft.

PIA leased the aircraft bearing the registration number BMH. The incident has now occurred twice, and according to reports, the outstanding balance is $4 million. The local Malaysian court revoked the order to seize the aircraft.

The same PIA Boeing 777 was impounded at Kuala Lumpur Airport earlier in 2021 due to the same unpaid lease issue. However, after receiving payment assurance from diplomatic authorities, the authorities later released the plane, and it landed in Pakistan on January 27.
