    Over the months we have reported on Flypop and Hans Airways. Neither so far has got off the ground.

    Today I spotted yet another of these paper airlines: IPS Airways.

    At the risk of being “incorrect” this looks like the route for child brides (and worse) to use ?

    Or perhaps just racist?

    I believe Flypop, although not carrying any passengers, actually has been flying freight on its leased A330 so is slightly more than a paper airline. IPS on the other hand may have a long way to go with a share capital of £100 and only one director, I wouldn’t be booking just yet, although their website does give a telephone number just in case you are tempted

    Hello sandiego1

    Yes as you can imagine I referred to commercial passenger flights.

    The Flypop website still says “Coming Soon” with no schedule information or possibility to make a booking.

    I hadn’t realised that Flypop was involved in cargo operations as my colleague reported at the end of January.

    Originally the plan was for this airline to operate passenger flights between UK and India.

    Now a photo has appeared on Twitter to show Flypop positioning a flight into Manchester.

    Today Flypop will be operating a charter flight for Tui to Cancun.

    Much to mu surprise I now see that IPS Airways (ipsairways.co.uk) has now activated its website.

    For the month of August it displays a limited schedule from EMA (East Midlands) and LBA (Leeds) to Pakistan.
