Airline for Sikh pilgrims, Akal Air, launches

An airline with potentially the best airplane food (for those with Punjabi palates) has just launched. Akal Air has just started bi-weekly flights (Wednesdays and Saturdays)from Birmingham, UK to Amritsar, a gateway for Sikhs to akalairlogo.jpgPunjab.

Daljit Singh Birring, managing director of Akal Air, suggested that Birmingham International Airport is the “perfect base” for the airline. He said: “Access to Amritsar is of huge importance to the large Punjabi and Sikh population of the Midlands taking the pilgrimage to the Golden Temple and visiting family and friends.” [cheapflights uk]

The new flights are good news for the large Asian community in the Midlands. Birmingham is the perfect base for Akal Air. Access to Amritsar is of huge importance to the large Punjabi and Sikh population of the Midlands taking the pilgrimage to the Golden Temple and visiting family and friends, as well as for business people trading with Indias emerging and developing economy, says Akal Air managing director, Daljit Singh Birring.

It seemsthathospitality will be a major feature of the airline.

Akal Air customers will always be treated with respect, due care and consideration and be offered a pleasant flight experience by all Akal Air staff from Check-in, boarding, in-flight through to baggage claim. [Akal Air]

Happy travels to all in Birmingham! I hope to see Akal Air expand in the near future.

    Hey it's a great step………

    Every success that Sikhs make; ensures the entire Sikh community at large that they don't need to be dependent on any other ethnic or religious group and that we don't need to be classified as an offshoot of any religion.

    It's true, Akal Air is a trading name of Air Sylhet, supposedly owned by a Bangladeshi and all the Board of Directors are paki's. Thus by trading as Akal Air, Sikhs would be basically funding pakis. Need I say no more, don't fly Akal Air, avoid it n the flight will ineviably be a flop, that is if it already isn't haha. Thank youuuu! :-)
