Start-up airline flypop has partnered with Hi Fly to start zero LOPA (layout of passenger accommodation) cargo operations.

flypop plans to start passenger services between London’s Stansted airport and India once the pandemic improves, connecting Indian and South Asian diaspora communities in the UK with family and friends but until then, the airline says cargo flights are the most effective way to start operations until the frequency cap on UK-India flights is increased.

Navdip Singh Judge, CEO and Principal of flypop says: “This is another major milestone in the flypop journey as we have inducted the first of our four aircraft. We hope our cargo routes will assist with the global demand for cargo and help to alleviate cargo shortages for the Christmas holidays and beyond.”

Paulo Mirpuri, President of Hi Fly says: “Helping flypop in its journey from a start-up airline to a global player is very exciting for me personally and also to my Hi Fly team of wide-body experts.”
