Pakistani private airline AirSial will add two aircraft to its fleet this month to start its international operations from Pakistan to different countries.
Details said the two A320-200 aircraft are being acquired by the airline on dry lease for 6-8 years with a seating capacity of 180 passengers. The fleet size of the private airline will be expanded to 5 after the arrival of the two aircraft.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) had already given the airline run by the businesspeople of Sialkot permission to start flying on foreign routes, primarily to Muslim nations including the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman, and Iraq.
The aircraft’s redesign and development are currently in their final stages. Depending on the regulator’s clearance from various authorities, the planes are scheduled to arrive in Pakistan between September 10 and 15.
The first AirSial flight took place in December 2020. The airline makes weekly departures from Karachi for Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar, and Quetta. To facilitate air travel to and from Pakistan, the Sialkot Chamber of Commerce & Industry established the airline.
