BENGALURU, June 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
It has been a known fact that the aviation industry has witnessed an exponential growth in the recent years. Although a lot of new airports have been operationalized, the airlines are constrained to provide direct (no transit) flights from these airports. Envisioning this demand of smaller business jets flying directly from A to B, the Sanjay Ghodawat Group - a reputed business house in India with over 20 business verticals, have entered the aviation with a promising new airline - Star Air.
Headquartered in the Bangalore International Airport, Star Air has been established with a view of serving the common man, with an experience like that of a business class. "What we aim for is to create the right balance between a common man's pocket and the expectations which he holds from an airline," quoted Capt. Simran Singh Tiwana, CEO of Star Air. "In due course time, we aim to provide an all jet engine fleet connecting new city pairs," he added.
Introducing the Embraer ERJ-145 for the first time in India in commercial airline, Star Air has smartly chalked out a road map, which seems to go a long way. The plane, till date, was the chosen favourite of the business class as private business jets. Starting off with a fleet of two aircrafts, the airline is planning a steady expansion.
Under the UDAN regional connectivity scheme, launched by the Govt. of India, Star Air has bagged three routes under their wings:
Hubli - Pune
Hubli - Hindon (Delhi)
Hubli - Tirupathi
The airline is yet to disclose its routes from Bangalore and other cities.
Though the airline is a greenhorn, the team is full of experience and high spirits. Headed by Capt. Tiwana, who believes in leading by example, the highly skilled team is backed by the parent team of The Sanjay Ghodawat Group. "Our Chairman has a vision to Connect the Real India. We have taken the first step. Now, our entire focus remains on providing best-in-class service," stated Capt. Tiwana.
