Media reports claimed today that the Emirates plans to launch domestic operations in Pakistan,
but these reports are not true, and we have checked formally.
Initially the news was mentioned that the UAE is preparing to launch domestic flights in Pakistan. Pakistan at a later time ran today, and a few others the same story while quoting the “News”.
However, the UAE has refuted the stories.
In accordance with the UAE and Pakistan to the State, and abused press release and the newspaper quoted an error by the media.
A source working with Emirates Pakistan, “the UAE does not have any plans to operate domestic flights in Pakistan.”
While the UAE is striving to increase its market share to Pakistan and Dubai route,
he said that working on domestic routes in Pakistan is out of the question for the time being.
It must be noted here that the International Air Transport Association (IATA) expects Pakistan’s domestic air travel to grow 9.5 percent, at least annually,
more than 2X faster than the world average annual growth rate of 4.1 percent over the next 20 years.
