Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are interested in doing business with a Karachi-based aviation company that is launching Pakistan’s first air taxi. A booking app will reportedly go live next week, according to a company representative.

An internet service will be established by Sky Wings Aviation in Karachi and Wind Speed International in Thailand to link South Asian airports and promote trade and tourism.

Sky Wings Aviation is authorized to offer chartered flights, ambulance services, and pilot training through the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

The service will fall under the category of charter flight operations that are governed by national aviation standards and that demand passenger data like nationality, address, contact information, the reason for travel, and aircraft specifications.

Middle Eastern companies are asking for specifics on the business model, according to Sky Wings Aviation COO Imran Aslam Khan.

As the company unveiled its Austrian-made aircraft with a German Jet A1 Fuel Engine in Karachi, Khan told Arab News that Dubai and Riyadh corporations were interested in the business model. Added him: “Because this business model does not currently exist anywhere in the world, these companies are willing to collaborate with us, invite us to visit them, and request that we present it to them.”

According to Khan, the distinctiveness of the business model and the accessibility of the aircraft models create a significant opportunity for global expansion. He continued by saying that the business plans to create a travel booking app that is comparable to Careem and Uber.

The fleet consists of Seneca, Cessna, and an Austrian-built airplane with three passenger seats and a German Jet A1 fuel engine that has a top speed of 300 km/h. Khan stated that prices varied by aircraft. He was specific:

“I’m going to fly these planes for $100 one way up to $350-400 an hour, which is unheard of. I am confident that the use of this type of aviation taxi will increase globally because it includes the cost of the aircraft, maintenance, pilots, insurance, and everything else.”
