Mena Jet a no frills carrier to be based in Sharjah will use A320's to the region as well as North African route and Air Baghdad a charter carrier started by a South African businessman will use a Dash-8 from Amman to Baghdad and later upgrade equipment to a 727 linking various Middle Eastern destinations. What about Gulf Air's new low cost?

.....up there with the best!

Hi Airmale,

GF's new leisure subsidiary should start operating in June. To start with, 6 out of the 9 GF's B767-300ERs, reconfigured into a single-class economy layout, will be transferred to the new airline, called "Gulf Traveller". Eventually, the 3 remaining ones will join the fleet.

Gulf Traveller's initial services will be to key points in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, the Middle East and South-East Asia. The leisure airline's long-term route development could see services to northern England and Africa. Abu Dhabi (UAE) will be used as a hub by the airline.

Gulf Traveller's livery is using the same 3 colours of its parent airline i.e. white, blue and gold in a much lighter and nicer way, IMO. The golden falcon will be still showing on the tail.
