Karachi-Hyderabad Air Service Launched

And with it, another player in the domestic air travel business in the country. Thankfully, we now have a little more choice in who to fly with.

The airline, Aircraft Sales and Services (ASSL), will use a 48-seater
twin-engine aircraft on the route that links two domestic transit hubs
with a lesser developed city [Khi-Hyd-Lhr], an initiative proposed in the new draft
aviation policy to promote intercity traveling.

A very good step, and i hope the rates and competition will make it a much better market in the future and we’ll see more entrants in this market who’ll be here to provide services and not just to disappear like BhojaAir and such.

    It’s a good two hour drive from Karachi
    to Hyderabad by car travelling on the
    “Super Highway”. The distance is roughly
    a hundred miles.

    How about launching air service from johar to tower? korangi to north etc? or helis? No traffic jams, just take care of flyovers, kites and kundas.
