Who are Saif Air?
Dreams are not necessarily held by a particular class of individuals; they can come about in the mind of any person. For many years, airlines have made people to believe that air travel has to be expensive. The founder of this airline Dr Saif had a dream to start an airline to change this misconception to make air travel affordable and enjoyable for everyone. Saif Air will allow people to travel more often, to meet with loved ones and develop business opportunities.
The airline is led by the former corporate banker and management consultant, Dr Saifur Rehman, who has a strong entrepreneurial track record and aviation experience. He has assembled a management team steeped in airline experience including executives and founders of other airlines.
Dr Saif has worked very hard on this project for many years and finally laid the foundation stone of this airline. The management has studied the demands, needs and wishes of the travelers which are over-looked by present airlines. This is why Saif Air is established to provide a premium and direct non-stop air service between the U.K and South Asian countries, where a strong market for a direct air service exists without the fear of direct competition from any UK and European carriers.
Saif Air's services will be tailored to meet the expectations of the market we are about to serve. We are confident that the services which our passengers will receive from us will be unique, highly professional and courteous, as our livelihood and prosperity depends on our passenger’s satisfaction.
It is important to note that Saif Air's flight operations will be handled and managed by an established Portuguese airline. Saif Air has already leased their AOC and operational crew. This airline is successfully operating worldwide for the last 50 years. They will handle our flight operation and aircraft maintenance which will enable Saif Air with considerable time saving in the start-up phase, thus taking away most of the operational burden from Saif Air’s management. The airline holds a valid worldwide AOC, which they have agreed to lease to us along with deck crew (Pilots), and technical personnel (Training Pilot, Engineers, Flight Operations, and Quality Control). Saif Air has already signed MOU with the AOC airline and with an aircraft leasing company for the lease of two brand new A330 neo/A350 - 1000 in three luxury First class, Economy Premium and Standard Economy classes.
Saif Air's management believes in a steady growth and will initially target the high-volume routes in which it will not be a threat to larger airlines. During the first three years, Saif Air will travel to: Pakistan (Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi), India (Amritsar), Bangladesh (Sylhet), Sri Lanka (Colombo), Saudi Arabia, USA (Newark and Chicago) and Canada (Toronto).
