Internation aviation services company Air Menzies International (AMI) is all set to launch full-fledged operations in Pakistan with the opening of two new branches in Lahore and Karachi.
Both branches are now fully operational, the company said in an official release.
“The new locations will offer AMI direct access to two of Pakistan’s high-growth industrial centers. The Karachi branch is close to Jinnah International Airport, which was the busiest airport in Pakistan pre-pandemic” the AMI said.
Karachi, an automotive manufacturing hub, is a significant contributor to the economic activities of Pakistan, generating around 20% of the country’s total GDP. While, Lahore is considered the technology and engineering hub of Pakistan, hosting the operations of global technology giants.
The expansion increases AMI’s presence in South Asia and is part of the company’s wider strategy to focus on the Asian market and key manufacturing and industrial hubs.
“We are excited to be entering the Pakistan market, as part of our strategy to establish a greater presence in the South Asian region. We have chosen two cities with huge potential and healthy projected economic growth of at least 5% over the next few years in both Karachi and Lahore” said Jonathon Clark, CEO of Air Menzies International.
The branches will be led by Nadeem Ahmed, Country Manager, who has had an extensive career in the freight forwarding industry in Pakistan.
“The Karachi and Lahore branches were operationalized early this year and the company is gearing up for full-fledged operations” early next year, Nadeem Ahmed, country manager for AMI, told Arab media.

AMI’s new branches will be offering a variety of wholesale air freight services, including: door-to-door services on global import and export shipments; exports with consolidation and Back2Back; Click2Ship, its market-leading platform for express shipments; X-ray screening and warehousing services; as well as customs clearance and documentation support.
