Pakistan civil associations give the permission to 2 new airline companies to start the official operation in Pakistan. Now Indus airline and Pearl Airline will started their operation soon in Pakistan. Already two Pakistan owned airline are operated in Pakistan in which Airblue and Shaheen Airline is included and these two airline already giving tough competition of Pakistan official Airline PIA and after the starting of new business and flight by Pearl Airline Pakistan and Indus airline Pakistan it is expected the lose of PIA will Increase and soon PIA will shut down its operation globally.
Pearl Air is a privately owned airline of Pakistan that is owned by and operates under the Habib Alvi Group. This airline of Pakistan was launched in the year 2004 and planned to start operations from 2007 however this failed.Pearl Air had as its senior executive Vice President, Faheem Baig and had intended to establish its hub at Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport.In January 2012, Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) allowed Pearl Airlines to start operation in Pakistan. Now Passenger Planes of Pearl Airlines would be started soon.From Karachi, it was to operate direct flights to Islamabad, Peshawar and Lahore.Civil Aviation Authority Pakistan permitted two new airlines to start their business in Pakistan. Indus Airlines and Pearl Airlines are now allowed to start domestic and international flights from Pakistan. Right Now there are six airlines in Pakistan which have commercial license. They are PIA, Air Blue, Shaheen Air, Bhoja Air, Pearl Air and Indus Air.Some people welcome the competition in the air market and hope that after starting new flight a new competition environment in Pakistan will increase and costumer will enjoy low fare flights but on the other hand one point of view is that this is just like suicide attack on PIA business by Pakistan government.
But New job opportunities will be created in both Airline ,Indus Airline and Pearl Airline.Management panel is selected for Indus airline and now hiring is started in Indus and Pearl Airline.The airline is a part of the Habib Alvi Group of companies. Pearl Airline has planned to operate the flights to Karachi , Lahore , Quetta , Islamabad , Peshawar and Faisalabad . Mr. Faheem Baig is the Senior Executive Vice President of the Pearl airline.
Please give your comments below about , Is it starting a new competition in Pakistan? or these two airlines will cause to collapse the business of Pakistan International airline.
