Star Air to use Rolls Royce engines

The Bengaluru-based airline Star Air will be using Rolls-Royce’s AE 3007 engine to power its planes, the companies announced at the Aero India 2019.

The company, that operates its flights out of Hubballi, currently owns two Brazilian-Embraer ERJ 145.

The airline is the newest airline in India and is backed by the Sanjay Ghodawat Group.

Also, to support its ambitious growth strategy, Star Air partnered to use Rolls-Royce’s flagship TotalCare long-term service support for the Rolls-Royce engines on its current two aircraft, and for the expansion of the fleet in the coming year.

“As a rapidly growing airline, it is key that we meet customers’ demands for the best travel experience through providing the best product and service offerings at the right price,” Captain Simran Singh Tiwana, Star Air’s CEO, said.
