New airline plans East Midlands - Fujairah - Amritsar flights

A new low-cost airline that will launch from the Fujairah International Airport in October this year plans flights between East Midlands Airport and Amritsar. Kang Pacific Airlines (KPA), the first private airline to fly out of Fujairah's new international passenger terminal, will become the fifth airline based in the UAE. It plans to offer flights to Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines.

Paul Kang, chief executive officer and founder of KPA, said that services to each destination will operate three times a week using leased McDonnell Douglas DC-10 aircraft. He said: 'The aircraft concerned is being provided by a reputable leasing company that has contracted Lufthansa Technic to undertake maintenance. Until recently, the aircraft was operated by the United Kingdom-based airline, MyTravel Airways, and meets all current aviation certification and operating requirements.'

He said that their decision to operate from Fujairah has been influenced by the huge demand for air travel service in and out of the northern emirate. Kang added that, unlike the other low-cost carriers in the region, KPA would not only cater to short-haul air transport but to long-distance travel service as well.

Mr. Kang said: 'KPA will later operate to Europe, flying wide-body equipment from East Midlands Airport to Fujairah and on to Amritsar in the Indian Punjab. Our sales efforts in this market will target the large Punjab immigrant community in the UK's East and West Midlands, as well as its Northwest region.'
