The organization announced in a news release that it had obtained its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and Air Operating License (AOL).
Following the conclusion of thorough inspections by the PCAA, “securing the AOC and AOL confirms that Fly Jinnah has met all the professional capabilities, adheres to all safety regulations, and has proven safe and secure to operate as a passenger and cargo airline,” the press release states, adding that the airline was in “full compliance” with all technical and operational standards established by PCAA.
The company also stated that it would keep working closely with the PCAA to decide when to start operating flights.
