AirSial will create competition for other Pakistani airlines, Prime Minister Imran Khan said after he inaugurated the new airline in Sialkot on Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Air Sial is Pakistan’s third private airline. Its first aircraft Airbus A320 landed at the Jinnah International Airport in Karachi from the United States on 29th Nov. 2020.

All three aircraft of AirSial have reached Pakistan two in Karachi and one in Sialkot.

The airline’s operations will initially rely on three Airbus A320-200s, which have been leased from AerCap, the world’s largest independent aircraft leasing company, based in Dublin, Ireland.

The premier called Sialkot’s business community the “most vibrant” one in the country. “First they made Sialkot International Airport. No one has made such an airport in such limited resources,” he said, congratulating the business community on launching the Air Sial initiative. The launch of Air Sial, the premier said, is beneficial for all.

He said Sialkot is about to become an even bigger export hub of Pakistan. “For this, they needed an airline,” he said.

This is just the start, but I have no doubt that you will run this just as well as you’ve run your airport, the premier said, adding that Air Sial will give competition to PIA.

“PIA will see that an airline is being run efficiently, on low funds and giving good service and this will put pressure on it to improve. Other airlines will also feel the pressure to be efficient,” the premier said, adding that Pakistan will benefit.
