According to a formal announcement released by the new airline company on Friday, K2 Airways, the first private airline to use Embraer E-Jets in the nation’s commercial aviation, is about to begin operations.
According to the announcement, the airline is supported by “successful Pakistani businesspeople and professionals with an astounding passion for aviation” based in the United Arab Emirates. The airline plans to use two Embraer E-190 aircraft this year to fly passengers to specified domestic destinations. The aircraft will connect Pakistan’s “smaller” and “under-utilized airports” with Karachi, Islamabad, and Lahore to make travel easier for domestic passengers.
The airline can operate as a feeder carrier for the existing domestic carriers to complement their operations, according to the announcement, with the goal of closing the gap by “offering flexibility to travelers” in selecting the appropriate airport within the catchment region.
According to the statement, the firm has a well-thought-out strategy to diversify and reinvent the travel experience of passengers through the Embraer E-Jets cabin experience, which will be seen in the coming days and has 2+2 row seating with comfortable legroom.
The businessmen and professionals backing the airline believe in “utilizing modern automation tools and gathering young and dynamic professionals” in the team to create a strong, technologically apt, and digitally enabled aviation entity in Pakistan.
