Global Airlines CEO James Asquith confirmed on LinkedIn his interest in launching flights to Pakistan and India after the initial launch flights to the U.S.
When asked by one of his followers about whether there would be any potential in servicing those two countries, Asquith replied:
“Definitely looking at that after first launch flights. I feel there are routes in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh that have been hugely underserved”.
Global Airlines CEO Confirms Interest in Pakistan, India Flights…
The topic of conversation for this was when Mr. Asquith posted about the return to service work on their Airbus A380s being in “full swing”.
Return to service work is the process of getting a commercial airliner ready to enter service, and in the context of Global Airlines, this will be needed as part of obtaining that all-important Air Operator’s Certificate.
India and Pakistan are major markets serviced by a plethora of UK carriers, and like with the U.S market, it remains clear that post-launch and going into the future that Mr. Asquith is wanting to go in that sort of direction.
Looking ahead, all eyes will be on the continued updates from the Global Airlines CEO on getting these A380s ready for commercial service, as well as how they are doing on their AOC itself.
Providing all goes well, the airline aims to launch services in mid next year, with the initial routes being to New York and Los Angeles from London.
