Hans Airways is a UK airline that flies scheduled flights. The airline is set to launch in Autumn 2021 and has been delayed several times due to ongoing travel restrictions as a result of COVID-19.
The airline hasn't announced a hub yet. However, with London and Birmingham being the only two UK destinations that it plans to have within its initial route network, it's very likely that the airline will base itself from one of those destinations.
Hans Airways plans to fly both short-haul and long-haul flights from the UK. The airline's first flight will be in Autumn 2021 with a service from the UK to India.
These are the destinations that Hans Airways plans to fly to. The only confirmed route that the airline has announced that it will fly is to India from either Birmingham or London.
The airline has only announced its widebody fleet so far, which will most likely be used for long-haul flights. For these flights, the airline will split the cabin into two classes – Economy Class and Premium Economy.
The airline promises a great service from when you arrive at the airport up until you land, with a great-value ticket that includes meals, in-flight entertainment and more.
Seats are set out in a 2 x 4 x 2 configuration.
The main difference between the Premium Economy and Economy cabin classes is that Premium Economy offers larger seats with more legroom.
Premium Economy passengers are also the first to enter and leave the plane.
Seats are set out in a 2 x 3 x 2 configuration. Premium Economy seats are slightly larger and give more legroom than seats in Economy Class.
Complimentary meals and drinks are served on all long-haul flights.
On short-haul flights, it's likely that passengers will be able to purchase lighter meals, snacks and drinks once in-flight. It's unclear at this time whether this will be included within the price of the ticket or not.
The airline has an in-flight entertainment system installed on all its long-haul flights, with seatback screens. In-flight entertainment includes a range of movies, music and important information on the flight and destinations that passengers are travelling to.
On short-haul flights, it's not yet known whether there'll be in-flight entertainment on the flight.
The airline is likely to offer online check-in.
Passengers will be able to check in at the airport for their flight. They must present their travel documents to a member of staff at the check-in desk.
