Fly Jinnah will begin commercial flights on November 1

Fly Jinnah, a new ultra-low-cost carrier, has announced that it will begin operations in November. From November 1, the Pakistani airline will launch four inland roads. The airline recently received its air operator certificate and made all final preparations for launch. The airline has been thoroughly investigated on all operations, verifying that the airline is safe and ready to fly.

Start of operation

The airline will operate its maiden flight to Islamabad International Airport (ISB) from Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport (KHI) on October 31. The flight will be operated on one of three airline flights Airbus A320-200. The following day, November 1, the airline will begin serving its routes to other Pakistani cities. It will operate flights connecting KHI to Allama Iqbal International Airport in Lahore (LHE), Quetta International Airport (UET) and Peshawar Bacha Khan International Airport in Peshawar (PEW).

All of these routes will be served by the airline’s newly acquired Airbus A320 fleet. The airline plans to expand this fleet as its operations expand. Fly Jinnah is one of many start-up airlines making its first appearance after the global pandemic. After the lifting of restrictions on air travel around the world, the air transit market has seen an incredible increase in demand. This demand has fueled a rapid recovery for many airlines whose operations have been hampered and whose finances have been ruined during the COVID-19 lockdowns.

This rapid growth in demand has helped existing airlines and opened up new opportunities for other airlines looking to build and expand their networks. Pakistan, like many other countries, has seen high levels of demand for air travel as a result of the pandemic. Fly Jinnah has been working for several months to begin operations. Now that its operations are underway, it will also benefit from the high demand levels of 2022.

As winter approaches, demand continues to decline. However, global air travel demand remains higher this winter than previous winters. Come next summer; the industry forecasts demand levels close to those of 2019. Air transport is expected to reach record levels within a few years. This is promising news for the young startup which will have to quickly gain a foothold in the air transport market.

Operator certificate

Fly Jinnah could not start operations at the end of the month if it had not obtained its air operator certificate. She received this certificate at the beginning of October. Until she received this certificate, she was unable to pursue any of her rough plans. The company was thrilled when it learned it had been obtained.
