Umer Sharif departs for the US in an air ambulance on Tuesday.
He was taken to the airport from where he flew out to Washington for his treatment in a German air ambulance.
A day earlier his blood pressure had dropped after dialysis and the air ambulance had threatened to leave.
Commissioner Karachi Murtaza Wahab also shared the update onTwitter.
“Umer Sharif Sahab is on his way to the airport for his flight to Washington,” Wahab tweeted, adding, “Please remember him in your prayers.”

Cardiologist Syed Tariq Shahab, who is actor Reema Khan’s husband and will be treating Omer Sharif in Washington, said that Omer will have to wait 48 hours before the experts can make a decision about travel.
The flight was postponed after Omer’s blood pressure dropped during dialysis, Dr. Tariq added.
Umer Sharif is to be shifted to George Washington University Hospital for medical treatment.
