Karachi: Shaheen Air International (SAI) began its annual Hajj schedule for the year 2018. The first flight NL 705 departed from Karachi to Madinah carrying 309 Hujjaj while additional flights for pilgrims will operate from other cities of the country including Lahore, Islamabad and Peshawar.
The airline in its eighth consecutive Hajj operation will use A320 and A330 wide body planes to fly pilgrims from the country to Madina and Jeddah. As part of its endeavors of providing maximum relief to the Hujjaj, Shaheen Air has also dedicated an A320 and A330 as backup for Hajj operations.
Zohaib Hassan, Director Marketing, SAI said, “As Pakistan’s second national carrier, it is an honor for Shaheen Air to be facilitating Hujjaaj on this blessed journey. We value their time and comfort. We are dedicatedly committed in providing remarkable facilities to our valued passengers flying from around the country.”
Last year, Shaheen Air was awarded with a certificate of appreciation and award of excellence by the Directorate General of Hajj – Pakistan upon successful completion of its Hajj operations for the year 2017. In addition Shaheen Air has also resumed its Dubai flights flying from around Pakistan.
