Arrow airways is a 5 years old airline company born from the dream of a young adult who suddenly won the lottery. Since he grew up in a very small village, he always had the urge to make the world a connected place, where people could go see their loved ones in no time, like their grandparents wished to visit his cousin and couldn´t. Well, now they can! It´s not a really big company, but it´s growing fast because it´s really affordable. Although, Arrow airlines never forget about the comfort of their clients. To reduce costs, this airline just works with one type of airplane. The next dream of the boy is to create an Arrow HUB. Maybe in another 5 years…

SkyLink was founded in 2017 with the aim of being a luxurious airline that didn’t break the banks. It would be a ‘middle-class’ airline that would fit in between budget airlines and premium airlines; whilst still offering premium and a luxurious experience. The airline began with five CRJ-700s and ran domestic flights across the UK with a main hub at Manchester Airport. The company is still growing with plans for multiple orders of the new Embraer E195-E2 and Bombardier Q400 soon. It mainly competes with the likes of Flybe and hopes to invest in more aircraft to carry out flights outside of the UK into other European countries.
