Air Slovakia's Punjabi owner returns home

Chandigarh: Air Slovakia's Punjabi owner, Harjinder Singh Sidhu, landed at Amritsar's Raja Sansi Airport recently with nearly 100 passengers.
The flight came in from Cologne in Germany. Passengers were thrilled to experience the Punjabi fare onboard, including Slovakian airhostesses articulating fluently in Punjabi.Senior Akali leaders from Amritsar warmly welcomed the passengers at the airport. A team of Bhangra dancers greeted the passengers with a performance on their arrival. Air Slovakia now has three planes-two Boeing 757s and one Boeing 737.
Sidhu is a typical rags to riches story. He says he used to sell Air Slovakia's tickets before becoming its financial director and then its owner. He says he migrated to London when he was 16 and worked in a Ford company. After performing a few odd jobs he brought his first petrol pump and eventually went on getting more and became the owner of more than 30 petrol pumps.
