A new airline will be launched from Stansted and Manchester next month, it has been revealed.
Air Sylhet, which is based in Birmingham and Vienna, will launch its maiden service from Stansted and Manchester to Dubai via the Austrian capital.
The investors behind the new airline admit that its launch comes at a troubled time for the industry, with a number of cheap flights carriers struggling under the burden of high fuel costs.
They insist, however, that they can exploit a gap in the airline market by offering new services to destinations that are poorly served by its competitors.
Commenting on the launch, Air Sylhet’s chairman Kabir Khan said that he recognised that launching a new airline in the current climate was "bucking the trend".
"The difference between our offering compared to others is that we provide a complete service to high and exacting standards, but we offer it at a rate which is value for money," he said.
Air Sylhet’s first commercial flight to Dubai will take off on November 9th. The airline has announced that it will introduce a new service to Bangladesh next year.
