Fly Jinnah (FJ), a low-cost airline for domestic travel, declared that it has obtained the necessary permits to begin running flights out of Jinnah International Airport.

FJ is a joint venture between the Air Arabia Group, which runs the first and biggest low-cost carrier in the Middle East and North Africa, and the Lakson Group, one of Pakistan‘s top corporate empires. Following federal government clearance, the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (PCAA) issued it a licence for Regular Public Transport last year.

The business announced in a news release today that it has obtained its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and Air Operating License (AOL).

“Securing the AOC and AOL confirms that Fly Jinnah has met all the professional capabilities, adheres to all safety regulations, and has proven safe and secure to operate as a passenger and cargo airline following the completion of rigorous inspections by the PCAA,” the press release reads, elaborating that the airline was in “full compliance” with all technical and operational requirements set by PCAA.

The company also stated that it would keep working closely with the PCAA to decide when to start operating flights.

Iqbal Ali Lakhani, the chairman of FJ, stated that a lot of work had gone into obtaining the permits and the company was looking forward to starting operations and boosting the economy.

“We thank the PCAA for their support throughout the entire process of obtaining the AOC and we are confident that FJ will add significant value to the air transport sector of Pakistan,” the press release quoted Air Arabia Group CEO Adel Al Ali as saying.

According to the press release, the airline had to show that it has the infrastructure, systems, processes, and procedures in place to guarantee the safety of the general public and its employees both on the ground and in the air in order to receive the AOC.

The carrier would launch its operations with a fleet of three Airbus A320 aircraft, it was added. The airline will be based in Karachi and operate domestic services before extending its network abroad, according to the press announcement.
