Prime Minister Imran Khan inaugurates Air Sial in Sialkot


ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan inaugurated Air Sial airlines after reaching Sialkot for a day trip on Wednesday.

Air Sial is Pakistan’s third private airline. Its first flight via Airbus A320 landed at the Jinnah International Airport in Karachi from the United States last month.

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.
