The airline then planned to launch in 2020, alas the coronavirus pandemic played spoilsport to the airline industry as whole. Now, Flypop conceives that the end of 2021 would be the right time for travel to pick up pace especially since people would want to take leisure trips to meet their loved ones. Meanwhile, another way to visit London would be to go on the longest bus route in the world from India to London.
