Just days after receiving its air operator's certificate and operating license, Fly Jinnah (9P, Karachi International) has confirmed its initial domestic network and rolled out its launch plans. Starting November 1, the airline will commence scheduled passenger services from its Karachi base to each of Lahore International, Quetta, Peshawar, and Islamabad International.

The startup, a joint venture between the Lakson Group and Air Arabia (G9, Sharjah), is using three A320-200s sourced from Air Arabia. According to a statement issued by Fly Jinnah, twice-daily flights between Karachi and Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore, and daily flights between Karachi and Peshawar will commence on November 1, while four times a week roundtrip flights between Karachi and Quetta will start on November 2.

According to the ch-aviation PRO airlines module, Fly Jinnah will battle for market share with multiple Pakistan-based active scheduled passenger carriers, including PIA - Pakistan International Airlines, AirBlue, AirSial, and Serene Air. The module also reveals a further 10 prospective passenger airlines are classed as still in the startup stage.
