Air transport supports over 30 million jobs and $684 billion in GDP in Asia and Pacific alone. Countries in Asia and Subcontinent are focusing on aviation as a catalyst for economic growth, supporting domestic and international connectivity, while contributing immensely to local employment.
Joint ventures in aviation have proven to be successful globally and are increasingly a commonplace. A typical JV model is for a parent airline group to have a minority share while local owners hold a majority share, marrying together local knowledge and world-class aviation expertise.
Almost all countries in the world follow the same policy of FDI in aviation that would permit up to 49 per cent foreign ownership. JVs provide significant social benefit to human capital through knowledge transfer and the development of local talents, by bringing in international experience, know-how, and training standards, into the local market.
Lakson Group and Air Arabia Group announced their decision to form a JV airline in Pakistan in September 2021. Fly Jinnah will follow the low-cost business model and provide its customer base with a reliable operation and value-driven product.
