Two New Airlines In The Middle East

Fri May 09, 2003 4:06 pm

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?

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.

The sky has no limit...
