Aviation sources said the airline will use two Embraer aircraft to start its domestic business. It will operate flights from Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad to Gwadar, Skadu and Turbat to promote tourism activities in the country.

The Embraer E-jet series is a series of narrow-body short- and medium-range twin-engine aircraft that can carry 66 to 124 passengers, while the E145 can accommodate 45-48 passengers.

Embraer is a Brazilian brand headquartered in Sao Paulo. It is the third largest commercial aircraft manufacturer in the world after Airbus and Boeing.

Aviation sources said the new airline will compete with the listed Pakistan International Airlines, which currently has 100% market share on Gwadar, Skardu and Turbat routes in various cities in the country.

“The company is hiring employees and finalizing the details of starting domestic operations. However, there is no finalized timetable for starting airline operations,” the airline official said.
