The app has a rather ubiquitous delivery network from its main centres such as Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad up to Mardan, Kamoke, Sheikhupura, and beyond.
Careem’s escalation as one of the major players in the food delivery business has been nothing short of a success story. With delicious discounts, myriad restaurants and quirky push notification (SMS) strategy, Careem NOW arrived. (The fact that their restaurants are sub-divided into ‘the busy ones (quick delivery)’, ‘the precise ones’ and ‘the regulars’, makes life so much easier!)

With a rating of 4.5 on Play Store, Airlift Express offers the convenience of one-tap grocery shopping for the busybodies out there. The app offers a wide range of products from cosmetics, cooking/baking essentials, household supplies and electronic items to dairy, frozen meat, bakery items, organic produce and more.
