Three new airlines have sought Regular Public Transport (RPT) permit from the CAA to launch flight operations in Pakistan
Q-Airlines, Fly Jinnah, and Jet Green are the three airlines that will start domestic operations in the coming months.
According to details, CAA has completed the scrutiny of Q-Airlines and Fly Jinnah while scrutiny of Jet Green is near completion.
After the conclusion of the scrutiny process, CAA will forward the RPT permit applications to Aviation Division and then to the Federal Cabinet for final approvals.
With the addition of three new airlines, the number of private airlines operating in Pakistan will increase to six.
Airblue, SereneAir, and AirSial are the three private airlines already functional in Pakistan while PIA is the national flag carrier and remains the largest and oldest airline in Pakistan.
Note that according to CAA laws, it is mandatory for new airlines to operate domestic flights for at least one year with three aircraft before becoming eligible for international operations.
