The Sanjay Ghodawat Group, an India business house with 20 over 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,” said 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.”
Introducing the Embraer ERJ-145 for the first time in India in commercial airline, Star Air has 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 to Pune, Hubli to Hindon (Delhi) and Hubli to Tirupathi. The airline is yet to disclose its routes from Bangalore and other cities.
“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 Tiwana.
The airline is all set to takeoff, with its first flight expected in mid-July 2018.
