Recently, the ride hailing app Careem’s Managing Director Junaid Iqbal posted on his Facebook account, announcing the upcoming launch of Careem air service. The post read, “Friends are you ready to #TakeOff? Yes, that’s correct – book your plane ride on or app NOW. Do share the selfies.”
Then, a follow-up post popped up encouraging his followers on the social network to guess where Careem would take its maiden flight to.
Finally, the day came, and the first ever Careem air taxi flight took place. First passengers of Careem Air were Pakistani musician and social media sensation Ali Noor, wife Mandana and a social media rep.
Does this mean that Careem has officially kicked off its newest venture? Will there be a fleet of Careem Air plane/taxis, and will boat service be next?
No other posts have been made by Junaid Iqbal on his FB page regarding anymore scheduled flights or a follow-up map of future destinations, so it is not known if this was a one-off promotional stint, or if the skies are literally the limit for Careem.
