Satnam Saini, Founder & CEO - Hans Airways
Many people would think that starting a business in a pandemic is a big risk. Perhaps even more people would think that starting a long-haul airline in the midst of a global pandemic which has reduced the majority of air travel to a fraction of its previous demand raises the stakes even higher. In this most challenging of business environments, step forward Satnam Saini, Founder and CEO of Hans Airways, the UK's newest long-haul airline which is looking to start services between the UK and India this autumn.
“Our raison d’etre is to serve the UK’s Indian community with the type of good value, high-quality non-stop service between the UK and India that it deserves,”
explains Saini from his London office.
“Having flown between the two countries many times in the past I had often thought, I could do this better than flying on Air India and for less than flying on British Airways. So, I decided that I had to do something.”
