POP is aiming to launch the first flight to Amritsar in 2017. We are aiming to fly to Ahmedabad shortly thereafter.
In the initial period we intend to fly three services weekly to each destination, moving up to six services per week very quickly once increased passenger demand is obvious.
The Indian communities in the UK have been demanding their own flights to Amritsar and Ahmedabad for many years, so the demand is there. Other destinations in India will be also announced in the future.
About 8.5 hours, but a little quicker or slower depending on the prevailing winds and the season.
Both Amritsar and Ahmedabad airports are very close to the city centres, about 6–7 miles
Announcements will be made soon after POP stars flying about further destinations, but India’s other second cities are a target initially.
POP's proposition is to use A330-300s, a state-of-the-art aircraft with modern standards and comfort. POP's intention is to use the same aircraft as our competitors, with some options (e.g. wi-fi) not available on their aircraft.
One piece of hand-luggage in the cabin; and two suitcases (23kg each) in the hold.
The dimensions will be announced in due course.
POP's desire is to offer a selection of truly authentic vegetarian and non-vegetarian options of classic Punjabi and Gujarati dishes created by staff skilled at cooking Indian food. And all served in generous thali-sized portions. Western options will also be available.
POP's intention is to have wi-fi access available. If the case, it means passengers can bring their mobile devices on-board and access the internet via wi-fi.
POP has carefully selected charities that fall with our target areas: orphanages, sick and/or malnourished children, mothers and women, provide education, and assist the hungry, homeless, destitute, disabled and elderly in need – along with the physical environment, which POP will work hard to protect in both the UK and India.
The frequency with which charities provide us with updates depends on the nature of the project being supported, but at least several times a year; all updates will appear on our website as they become available.
All money donated will be distributed by the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF). CAF validates all charities before transferring any money, which means that we can be sure that our charities are operating legitimately before we part with our money.
