Serene Air has just received the delivery of their first aircraft in Pakistan.
The airline, which received its license to establish a private airline in Pakistan in March 2016, has just added its first aircraft to its starting fleet. The aircraft, Boeing 737- 800 was flown from the headquarters of Boeing in Seattle Boeing Field, USA.
The aircraft is one of the first of three 737-800s that will be the starting planes for the new private airline’s service. These aircraft will be specifically used for domestic routes starting from December 2016.
Serene Air has planned to operate with a fleet of 3-7 737-800s aircraft to domestic locations such as Lahore, Quetta, Islamabad, Peshawar, Karachi and Multan.
The first aircraft arrived over the weekend at the Jinnah International Airport, Karachi.
The airline is yet to receive the Air Operator’s Certificate from the Civil Aviation Authority and is expected to launch full-scale domestic services in December.
Serene Air also plans to launch international operations. But in order to do so, it must apply for an international license once it has achieved successful operations under domestic routes for at least a year.
Currently, there are only three airlines operating on domestic routes. These include Airblue, PIA and Shaheen Air.
Serene Air will be the fourth airline to offer domestic flights.
