Air Sial on Friday started its Karachi-Islamabad flights operation using Airbus A320-200.
Prime Minister Imran Khan had inaugurated Air Sial on Dec 9, the third private airline of Pakistan, which had been launched and operated by Sialkot’s business community, initially with three Airbus A320-200s.
The first flight of Air Sial with 185 passengers on board departed from Jinnah International Airport on Friday morning on domestic route and touched down the Islamabad International Airport at around 9:15am.
On arrival at IIAP, the Air Sial staff members welcomed the passengers.
Later the flight took off for Karachi.
Air Sial, a licensed airline, is the brainchild of members of the Sialkot Chamber of Commerce and Industry who launched the project after the success of their earlier initiative, the Sialkot International Airport Ltd.
The airline management had set up its booking and facilitation office at Islamabad International Airport as it was made operational on Wednesday by the airline staff.
Initially, the airline will operate two flights between Karachi and Islamabad which the management said would be increased to three flights.
They claimed that the airline will provide international standard service to its passengers.
