SIALKOT, Pakistan: The Sialkot-based airline AirSial is all set to launch its domestic flight operations from December 25, 2020.
The airline, which is a Rs 3.5 billion project of the members of Sialkot Chamber of Commerce and Industry, is Pakistan’s third privately owned airline.
Initially, AirSial will be relying on three Airbus A320-200s which have been leased from AerCap in Dublin.
The carrier, which aims to become the leading airline of the region, will be running scheduled flights between Karachi, Islamabad, Lahore, Sialkot, and Peshawar in the first phase but plans to extend operations to the Middle East in two years.
AirSial was inaugurated by Prime Minister Imran Khan earlier in December 2020 at a ceremony held in Sialkot.
The prime minister called the launch “a very important step for the airline industry in Pakistan.”
The CEO Sastaticket.pk Mr. Shazil Mehkri remarked that the launch of Pakistan’s third private airline will give a much-needed stimulus to the local aviation industry and provide customers with more travel options.
AirSial flight tickets are now available for online booking on Sastaticket.pk which is Pakistan’s leading online travel booking portal.
