A new Stansted-based startup airline is set to launch in 2021. Not too far away in Copenhagen a new 'virtual airline' will also soon launch with some not-so-new fleet. One European airport achieves and retains a 5-star SkyTrax rating. And Gulfstream Aerospace Corp exceeds expectations. Here are this weeks pulse.

Airlines: New Kids on The Block!

Thanks to a grant by the UK government COVID-19 Future Fund, a new startup airline is set to launch in 2021. FlyPOP, will be based at London Stansted Airport and will operate scheduled flights from the UK to India. Flypop’s goes far in their company responsibilities which includes a carbon offset funding of £6 for every ticket sold, as well food donations to homeless people in the UK for every meal sold onboard.


Not too far away in a neighboring kingdom, Airseven, based in Copenhagen Roskilde, is set to launch by late 2020 or early 2021. The airline will start operations with two 737-400s aircraft which are nearly three decades old.

Airseven is branding itself as a charter, ad-hoc, and wet leasing airline. This means the airline will not establish scheduled routes, instead, flying charter contracts or simply leasing the plane out to one-off flights. These operations can be quite lucrative due to the high cost of last-minute leases.

It should be noted that Airseven is a “virtual airline”, which means it will outsource nearly all of its functions. The aircraft will be operated by the well-known Copenhagen Airtaxi, but carrying the Airseven livery.

In a statement to Aero Telegraph, Primo Tours CEO Bjarke Hansen said he believes there is room for a small and flexible airline in the current climate. Charter routes could become more popular in the coming months due to ever-changing border and quarantine restrictions across Europe.


Airports: Time to Revamp and Upgrade in Hopes For a 5-Star Rating!

Taking advantage of the slower air traffic, DAA Dublin Airport is planning a major facelift for Terminal 1. The updates will dramatically increase natural light to the building and creating more sustainable energy consumption.

Terminal 1 opened in May 1972 at a cost of £7 million and effectively replaced Dublin Airport’s original 1940s terminal. The newer terminal connected passengers more directly with Piers A and B – now the 200 and 300 boarding gate areas – which was built in the early 1960s.

FMG Munich Airport is the only European airport to achieve and retain its 5 start raking as awarded by SkyTrax. The Airport got it's first 5-star status in 2015 and successfully maintained the ranking in 2017. In the recent 2020 Skytrax rating Munich Airport has not only maintained its high quality of service and hospitality, but has even further extended it. Congratulations!

The other 5 star airport hubs around the world are: Doha Hamad International, Hong Kong International, Shanghai Hongqiao, Singapore Changi and Tokyo Haneda.


Aerospace: Best of Both Worlds: Speed and Range!


Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation has just announced that their next generation G500 and G600 will once again demonstrate additional range capability, exceeding expectations. Thanks to a higher Mach speed at cruise, additional range can be achieved for both aircraft models. The G500 can now fly 5,300 nm at Mach 0.85 and 4,500 nm at Mach 0.90, while the G600 increases its range to 6,600 nm at long-range and 5,600 nm at high-speed cruise, enough range to connect far-flung cities like New York and Dubai, London and Beijing, or Los Angeles and Shanghai nonstop2.

Phebe Novakovic—chairman and CEO of Gulfstream parent General Dynamics—said more than 90 G500/600s will be in service by year-end.

Fun Fact of the Week!

Ever thought about the busiest flight route of all times?

In pre-covid times, the South Korean Seoul-Jeju flight was the busiest on the planet. 14 million passengers every year were transported on this 449-km journey. With 250 scheduled flights a day, you can board a flight every 15 minutes!
