Fly Jinnah Launches Third International Route

DALLAS - Pakistan’s new low-cost carrier (LCC) Fly Jinnah (FJ) has launched its third international flight from Islamabad International Airport (ISB) to Muscat International Airport (MCT) in Oman. 

The Karachi (KHI) based carrier, which is owned and operated jointly by Pakistan’s Lakson Group and Air Arabia Group has selected MCT as the next destination in its growing route network. The airline will operate twice weekly flights on this route with an Airbus A320. The bi-weekly service provides passengers with convenient and affordable connectivity between ISB and MCT. 

“We are committed to continuous growth and success to expand opportunities in air travel. I am proud to have started non-stop flights between Islamabad and Muscat, which is Fly Jinnah’s third international destination. This expansion underscores Fly Jinnah’s commitment to offering more affordable and quality air travel domestically and internationally,” said FJ CEO.
