KARACHI: Pakistan’s private airline SereneAir has started two flights a week from Lahore to Saudi Arabia in a bid to increase its international flight operation.
SereneAir said that it will operate two flights a week from Lahore to Jeddah starting from December 5.
Announcing more facilities for the passengers traveling from Lahore to Jeddah, the airline said that economy class ticket holders can carry weight up to 50 kg, and SereneAir plus ticket holders can carry luggage up to 80 kg.
It may be recalled that in recent days, the Saudi government has lifted the travel ban, after which direct flights from Pakistan to Saudi Arabia have been restored.
The first PIA flight carrying 121 passengers from Multan, bound for Umrah pilgrimage, landed in Medina on December 1, while the second flight was operated on December 2 from Islamabad to the KSA.
Earlier, SereneAir and TCS (Pvt) Limited on Wednesday announced the signing of a cargo general sales agent (CGSA) agreement to expand the supply chain solutions of the latter.
The agreement aims to upgrade the movement of goods within the country. “We are living in an age of collaboration and this partnership will allow both organizations to enhance their customers’ journey and experience,” CEO TCS (Pvt.) Limited Muhammad Harris Jamali said.
He said the partnership with SereneAir (Pvt), a privately owned Pakistani airline, would leverage TCS’s respective networks to provide customized and end-to-end supply chain solutions to small and large businesses alike. He envisaged that the partnership would accelerate the movement of goods and commerce across Pakistan.
