With the entrance of a fresh airline into the industry, the attention of enthusiastic voyagers is immediately captured. What offerings are in store? Is it budget-friendly? And, of utmost importance, is it of high quality?
Currently, the spotlight is directed towards Global Airlines, an emerging carrier gearing up to inaugurate transatlantic routes connecting NYC’s JFK International Airport and London’s Gatwick Airport, slated for a mid-2024 launch as reported by The Independent. Beyond simply augmenting the roster of US-bound airlines, this airline is poised to stand out from its counterparts.
As per its official website, Global Airlines is on a mission to “transform the landscape of commercial aviation.” The company’s central objective revolves around delivering exceptional customer service that commences right from the ground, ensuring all-encompassing excellence in the flight journey. Whether it’s catering, customer interactions, scheduling, or ground operations, each aspect contributes significantly to one’s travel experience, and Global Airlines is committed to enhancing all of them.
The airline’s website emphasizes, “We’ve collectively endured lengthy security lines, delayed flights, misplaced baggage, unsatisfactory meals, and consistent subpar customer service for far too long. Global Airlines offers prompt relief from the challenges associated with commercial air travel.”
At the helm of the company stands James Asquith, the founder, and CEO of the airline. During an interview with the PA news agency, Asquith expressed his aspiration to establish a lasting legacy, stating a preference to “exit with no monetary gain but a product that truly resonates with people.”
Central to this endeavor is the commitment to providing top-tier dining and beverages onboard. Asquith revealed plans to feature Laurent-Perrier champagne, aiming to extend the luxury experience to economy passengers with a complimentary glass of Laurent-Perrier, pending cost considerations. As for ticket prices, fret not. Asquith assures that Global Airlines aims to present fares that are either equivalent to or even lower than those offered by other carriers.
“This is more welcome news for Taxi Cab service providers in New York. More international flights mean more airport transfers and hotel transfers. The industry welcomes this news and is ready to serve the passengers coming to New York.” – Abdul Kader, Founder of Abb Limo Car Service Inc.
Upon launching the London to NYC route, Global Airlines will further extend its services to encompass flights between London and Los Angeles. However, the scope of expansion surpasses these initial routes, as the carrier has ambitious plans to introduce additional destinations and routes in the forthcoming years.
