Fly Jinnah airline begins flight operations
Fly Jinnah, Pakistan’s low-cost carrier, has begun operations as the country’s fourth domestic airline.
On Monday afternoon, the inaugural flight from Karachi to Islamabad took off. At the flight’s departure, a cake was cut in the Jinnah Terminal lounge, and the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) delivered a water salute as it landed at Islamabad International Airport.
Adel Abdullah Ali, CEO of Air Arabia Group, Colgate Palmolive Pakistan and Fly Jinnah Director Zulfiqar Ali Lakhani, CAA Director General Khaqan Murtaza, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Senator Saleem Mandviwala, and Prime Minister Fahd Hussain were also present.
Fly Jinnah COO Arman Yahya stated that the airline, which is equipped with current technology, has reached the milestone of beginning flight operations. He stated that the airline will play an essential role in the aviation industry by providing passengers with a simple and comfortable mode of transportation. He stated that there will be no compromises on safety, and that operations will begin with three Airbus A320 planes.
Domestic flights will begin in the first year, with international flights beginning in the second. Fly Jinnah will conduct daily flights from Karachi to Islamabad, Lahore, and Peshawar, as well as four weekly flights to Quetta, he said.
He also stated that flights will reach tiny airports, like Skardu.
The flight was described as comfortable and satisfying by actors Behroz Sabzwari, Muneeb Butt, and Aiman Khan, as well as singer Faakhir Mehmood and other passengers. They also extended their best wishes to the airline.
The airline’s management is convinced that it will supply passengers with value-added products and services that will make air travel more convenient and comfortable. They stated that they are committed to collaborating with partners in order to successfully satisfy the needs of the Pakistani market and to contribute to the tourist sector by offering the greatest travel amenities in the country.
The CAA granted the airline an air operator certificate and an air operating licence earlier this month, allowing it to begin domestic flying operations.
The airline provides in-flight entertainment on all of its planes, and customers may also enjoy a range of hot meals and beverages at a cheap rate from the in-flight Sky Café.
The airline was announced in September 2021 as a joint venture between Lakson Group and Air Arabia Group. It has established its headquarters in Karachi.
