POP's aircraft of choice is the Airbus A330– the same modern aircraft as its established competition. POP’s passengers would expect nothing less
POP is aiming for the first flight to depart from Stansted Airport using state-of-the-art Airbus A330 aircraft in POP livery to Amritsar (Punjab) and Ahmedabad (Gujarat).
The A330 remains the preferred option for over 100 airlines worldwide, flying to over 400 destinations each week on both established routes and expanding markets.
The A330 is a part of the most modern and reliable family of aircraft in the market today due to its proven and unrivalled low operating costs, high efficiency, flexibility, reliability and optimized performance. It is less polluting, less noisy (with a quieter cabin) and more fuel-efficient than a lot of the competition, along with a huge cargo hold. An efficient fleet with lower operating costs translates into lower ticket prices for FlyPOP’s passengers – and a less polluted world.
A330 are also designed to give passengers a great in-flight experience. Additional headroom in the cabin, for example, means there is more space in which to stow carry-on hand luggage. Other features include a twin aisle arrangement which improves passenger comfort and eases movement throughout the cabin. POP is aiming for the aircraft to have a Wi-Fi option for those who want to watch their entertainment or order food and beverages on mobile devices. Every seat will have a USB power port.
From the outset, it is intended that a high proportion of cabin staff will be ethnic South Asians with proven language skills. ‘Exceptional cultural sensitivity’ will define the POP customer experience when interacting with POP’ staff.
The reason why POP can now fly to Amritsar and Ahmedabad is that these were some of the very first airports in India to be refurbished to international standards especially to receive the new larger types of aircraft, such as the A330, then becoming more commonly used by international operators such as POP.
With modern aircraft and all the comforts expected by today’s more discerning customers, FlyPOP is the natural choice when flying between the UK, Amritsar, Ahmedabad and indeed and South Asia.
