Resource Group are excited to announce a newly formed partnership with the UK start-up airline, Hans Airways. Resource Group have started the recruitment process for the flight crews needed to support Hans Airways path towards gaining its UK Air Operator Certificate (AOC) later this year.
Resource Group’s UK subsidiary, Contractair will work alongside Hans Airways in hiring Captains, First Officers and Training Captains required to fly its planned fleet of A330-200s. Contractair has a long history of providing dedicated support to the commercial and VIP aviation markets with an added focus on the quality of personnel that such operations require.
“We welcome Hans Airways to our ever-expanding portfolio of airline partners and we look forward to helping them on their start-up journey,” comments Robin Hepworth, Business Manager at Resource Group. “We have been serving the recruitment and resourcing needs of the aviation and aerospace sector for more than 40 years and we are confident of maintaining a strong relationship with Hans Airways as its network expands.”
“This recruitment agreement is a well-timed development as we prepare to launch our direct non-stop flights to India later in 2021,” says Nathan Burkitt, Director Flight Operations and Crew Training at Hans Airways. “It will allow the leadership team to focus on our launch preparations while at the same time filling the essential flight crew roles that we need. Resource Group brings decades of invaluable experience in this field, having worked with the likes of British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and easyJet, to name but a few of their other airline partners.”
Hans Airways are delivering on their promise to sign with well-recognised third-party suppliers and Resource Group look forward to sourcing its first flight crew in readiness for the start of operations in late 2021. “Our intention from the beginning has been to work with industry-leading partners, like Resource Group, who are recognised as best in class at what they do. This strategy will continue as we move closer to launch,” adds Burkitt.
