Flydubai Establishes Position In Low Cost Aviation Sector
November 24, 2009 18:39 PM

DUBAI, Nov 24 (Bernama) -- United Arab Emirates (UAE) Minster of Economy and Chairman of the General Civil Aviation Authority Board, Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansouri, said that the low cost airline, flydubai, has proved its efficiency in the low cost aviation sector since its launch in June, Emirates news agency (WAM) reported Tuesday.

He said the company has launched a number of international routes including a new destination to the Azeri capital, Baku starting November 20. He said this achievement reflects the strength of the economy and the aviation sector's growth regionally and internationally.

Al Mansouri said that the airline will have 12 destinations by the end of this year and will receive its sixth aircraft in December, adding that the new destination will enhance economic relations between the two countries.

He said relations between the UAE and Azerbaijan have witnessed significant development in recent years led by the signing of an agreement for economic, commercial and technical cooperation in 2006.

The non-oil trade exchange between the UAE and Azerbaijan increased by 21 per cent from US$147 millions in 2002 to US$318 millions in 2006. The total export and re-export from the country to Azerbaijan grew by 22 per cent from US$143 millions to US$316 millions.

Al Mansouri said the new destination is the result of bilateral agreement that the UAE recently signed with the Azeri Minister of Transport, which also includes future cooperation between the two countries in various fields of transportation.

The two parties stressed on the importance of facilitating and increasing transportation between the two countries, and enhancing cooperation in implementing and applying the latest technologies in the sector.

This comes as result of the fruitful meetings and great efforts exerted by the government authorities in both countries in Baku in 2003 and in Dubai in 2007 including the launch new air routes, strengthening infrastructure and building a cooperation framework in the transport business.

flydubai, Dubai's first low cost airline, expanded its network into the former Soviet Union for the first time on November 20, when it commences flights to Baku.

Investors plan low-cost carrier in Abu Dhabi-report
27 December 2009

DUBAI, Dec 27 (Reuters) - An investment company plans to launch the third low-cost carrier in the United Arab Emirates in 2010, a newspaper reported on Sunday, quoting unnamed aviation sources.

The airline, which will be based in the capital and flying out of Abu Dhabi, will start operating in mid-2010, daily al-Khaleej said. The newspaper did not identify the investment company.

The new budget carrier will face growing competition from two UAE low-cost carriers, Air Arabia and flydubai, as well as a number of regional operators.

Kuwait's Jazeera Airways said on Wednesday it was cutting services on certain routes to weather difficult times with no improvement in sight next year.

Gulf Air sells Airbus planes to U.S.' Apollo

MANAMA, Jan 24 (Reuters) - Bahrain's state-owned carrier Gulf Air [GULF.UL] has sold two Airbus A340 aircraft to U.S.-based Apollo Aviation Group as part of efforts to realign its fleet to a new strategy focusing on regional routes.

Gulf Air said in a statement, in which it did not disclose the transaction's terms, that the two aircraft were 16 years old and had no longer been in service.

It said it saved $25 million in investments needed to return the two aircraft to service.

The loss-making carrier plans to shift its order book from wide-body to narrow body planes and regional jets as it changes its route network to focus on regional traffic.

Mideast airlines see highest '09 traffic growth-IATA

DUBAI, Jan 27 (Reuters) - Middle Eastern airlines registered the highest growth rate of 11.2 percent in air passenger traffic globally for 2009, as carriers snapped up long-haul connecting traffic, the international air traffic body said on Wednesday.

"These gains result from Middle Eastern carriers taking a larger share of long-haul connecting traffic over their hubs," The International Air Transport Association (IATA) said.

Regional carriers generated the fastest growth in passenger traffic in December 2009, up 19.1 percent from the same period in 2008, IATA said.

Last year's international air traffic demand saw the sharpest drop since the decline following the second world war, with a fall of 3.5 percent.

Most Middle Eastern traffic is generated through Gulf Arab states, with airlines including Emirates [EMIRA.UL], Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways.

Gulf Arab countries are expected to enjoy higher growth rates in 2010 than previously expected, helped by global recovery, despite debt woes in the United Arab Emirates weighing on the outlook, a Reuters poll showed on Tuesday.

Middle East carriers' freight demand increased by 7 percent in 2009 versus 2008, IATA said.
