Will SHJ be a LCC hub in the future? The cost structure and location make it perfect for an medium to long haul LCC hub.

Interesting that central UP gets these flights - there is a lot of labour market demand, how is FD doing on their DXB-LKO sector?

FZ along with AIX are doing very well out of LKO.

Till the time DXB shuts down and moves lock, stock & barrell to DWC, SHJ will play second fiddle to DXB T2 for LCC as well.
