Their website states that they are available to operate Hajj Pilgramage charters to Mecca in Saudia Arabia.
But with the name "AIR RUM"?
Islam's Holiest Day? A religon fobidding the consumption of alcohol?
Am I missing something?
Does Rum translate into something else in Arabic?
They say they fly to ginea besaw. I thought it was Guinea Bissau?
Read the letter from the CEO. They do "something to their passengers between their hands". And they state they are good at "height"?
I try to give small airlines like this the benefit of the doubt, but some of their text was such nonsensical jibberish, I closed the window thinking, "Why even bother?!"
In an amusing side, they state they fly to the "Kingdome of Saudi Arabia"
(King Dome was once a 60,000 seat covered stadium in Seattle that they bulldozed to make room for a new facility, just in case some of you didn't know)
They also proclaim they will fly you to ANYWHERE in the world, except North and South America and Australia. (?)

If I hadn't seen the photographs of the aircraft, I would have thought that website was a p**s-take created by some enthusiast for a laugh. Or a virtual airline or something like that. Interesting, to say the least.
I know not everyone can be expected to speak or write English, but seriously... when you read some of that, it just sounds unprofessional. It seems someone's written something in their own language and just bunged it into an online translator, then copied and pasted it.
