Hans Airways to start direct flights on UK-India sector from early 2022

Hans Airways, a new startup UK airline, plans to commence air operations from the UK to India beginning early 2022. The airline had previously announced to inaugurate its maiden flight in autumn 2021, which was delayed due to ongoing travel restrictions and approval process.

In August, Hans Airways announced a recruitment agreement with Swiss company Resource Group to hire captains, first officers, and training captains to fly a fleet of Airbus A330-200s for direct non-stop flights to India. Advancing to secure Air Operator’s Certificate (AOC) from the UK Civil Aviation Authority, the airline will launch its operations in India once all regulatory requirements are complete.

As UK’s new startup Hans Airways is moving closer to launch, it intends to conduct UK-India operations using Airbus A330 aircraft to serve secondary airports on a low-cost model. Two-class configured A330 will likely have 208 economy class and 73 premium economy class seats.

The airline’s eyes direct service to underserved Indian routes, the low cost will be an inevitable key. The airline submitted the required operational manual to the UK Civil Aviation Authority for its operating license last year and had some regulatory hoops to navigate for gaining approval for documents. As the airline is looking forward to launching routes between the United Kingdom and the Indian sub-continent starting early 2022, the airline has made arrangements to get an operating and route license to serve India.

In June, Hans Airways appointed its initial board line-up having a combined airline management experience of over 130 years to deliver on the objective of building solid and robust foundations needed to succeed in the airline industry.
