Hans Airways celebrated the arrival of its first Airbus A330-200 on UK soil. The aircraft touched down from Palma Airport, Mallorca to Birmingham International Airport ahead of formal technical handover and technical acceptance signing with the lessor.
Hans Airways has partnered with maintenance and repair overhaul specialist STS Aviation Services for Re-Registration tasks and Entry into service modifications ahead of its important route-proving flight for the UK Civil Aviation Authority in the coming weeks. The A330 will fly as newly re-registered G-KJAS.
“Our first widebody Airbus arriving into the UK is a big and significant milestone on Hans Airways’ journey to launch,” said CEO Satnam Saini. These past 12 months we are very pleased to have added a wealth of competence and experience to our leadership and management team and recruited and trained up a full complement of exceptional pilots and cabin crew who will be ready to fly as soon as the airline’s AOC is awarded.
Once it has its AOC, Hans Airways is planning an initial four times weekly service from Birmingham to Amritsar in North India.
