This month, AirSial will begin operating internationally from Pakistan to various nations by adding two planes to its fleet.
The two 180-seater A320-200 aircraft are being purchased by the airline on a dry lease for 6–8 years, according to the specifics. After the two planes arrive, the private airline’s fleet will increase to five.
BOC Aviation, a global provider of aircraft operating leasing, will lease the aircraft.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) recently gave the airline run by Sialkot businessmen permission to start flying on foreign routes, mostly to Muslim nations such the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, and Iraq.
At present, the revamp and design work of the aircraft are at the final stages. The aircraft are likely to arrive in Pakistan between September 10-15 depending on the regulator’s permission from different authorities.
The first AirSial flight took place in December 2020. Weekly departures from Karachi are made by the airline for Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar, and Quetta. To facilitate air travel to and from Pakistan, the Sialkot Chamber of Commerce & Industry established the airline.
