Introduction of A220 by Bombardier disrupted the market quite a bit. And Airbus acquiring CS series from Bombardier(now the A220 series) was a master stroke, a brilliant business decision.

This has rendered the future of traditional narrow bodies such as A320 and Boeing 737 uncertain. They could risk being axed from their respective product lines.


With Airbus gaining more market share due to Boeing being in hot water already a few customers had terminated their orders with Boeing partly due to coronavirus, 737 MAX problems and also cuz better options have now opened up. Also to note Boeing-Embraer has also fallen through which has left Embraer like a jilted bride(great oppurtunity for PAC to look into at least better than making outdated turbo props with COMAC, which few markets will be interested in). Embraer plans to sue, it'd be interesting to see if Boeing loses another lawsuit like they lost to Airbus-Bombardier before (due to their own stupidity :lol:)


It still remains to be seen what impact Mitsubishi's MRJ, Sukhoi's Superjet and COMAC jets will have on the market.

Yeah they have subtly put it everywhere. Pakistan flag, Turk flag. If you look closely at PAF logo it also has this baphomet star.

I know this but I didn't speak about it earlier cuz all of PDF will just call me a tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist.
im not judging anyone's intention. it can be a coincidence.. star on flags.. im pretty sure they got nothing to do with Satanist symbols..

Its short for Air Sialkot. The owners are just being patriotic to their city. I don't find anything wrong with that.
I dont agree with name. But intention is good I guess.

This airline should also be head quartered in Sialkot then to bring more revenue to a different city than just Lahore, Karachi or Islamabad. From landing and other operational fees airport can charge them and other airlines.

Build better tourist sights to link the airline with the tourism industry in Pakistan.

Hopefully they follow international standard for safety, not like Pathetic International Airlines.

I wish them all the best! I hope they grow.

They'll do good unless they hire every paindoo whose mamu chachu is in the airline.

I am not sure mate, but if i was the owner of the airline, i would have my operational hub at a place, either right in the centre of all operations or at the place where i will have the most passengers. Meaning the administrative Head-office to be in Sialkot but my operational HQ at either Karachi or Lahore.

Headquarters (corporate office) is in sialkot while operational hub is Karachi.

From the above video it seems that Air Sial will have true regional business model. In my view it will be the first true regional airline in Pakistan. Aiming to provide service even to smaller destinations which no LCC like Air blue or Serene serves.

As the chairman says he wants to bring modern regional jets is a great decision in my view. Especially if they choose A220 series for local to international Eurasian routes along with local regional and ERJ/CRJ/E-Jet series are a good option for only local routes.

Whether they will adopt the LCC model or stick with regional model remains to be seen.

P.S
I love his bhola punjabi accent so sweet.
