Shaheen Air International Shaheen Air was a private Pakistani airline with its head office at Jinnah International Airport in Karachi and was founded by the Shehbai family before its liquidation in 2018 due to financial troubles. In December 2018, owners of airline, Kashif Mehmud Sehbai and Ehsan Khalid Sehbai, flee the country to Canada to avoid debt related prosecution. The airline owed billion to Civil Aviation Authority of Pakistan (CAA) and its employees salaries. On 22 May 2004, the Civil Aviation Authority of Pakistan (CAA) grounded Shaheen Air as the airline owed it millions of rupees. Three days later the airline was cleared by the CAA to resume its domestic and international operations. The clearance letter was issued by CAA following receipt of a payment from Shaheen Air International towards the outstanding dues and funds. The same year, Shaheen Air International (SAI) became Shaheen Air and the airline introduced a new livery and corporate website.
