Pakistan's Shaheen Air International has added three Boeing 737-200 aircraft to its fleet, bringing its fleet to ten privately-owned 737 aircraft.

The three new aircraft have a seating capacity of 124 and were purchased "from a company in South Africa," says the privately-owned carrier.

With its fleet expansion the carrier has added flights.

On 18 July the carrier commenced twice-weekly service to Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates from Peshawar, Pakistan and twice-weekly to Sharjah from Sialkot, Pakistan. It will launch two additional twice-weekly services on 25 July, to Muscat, Oman from Peshawar, and to Muscat from Sialkot.
