Benoy to design Bahrain airport’s new terminal interior


International design practice Benoy has been appointed to the Bahrain International Airport’s new terminal development to provide services for the interior design of the new passenger terminal building as part of the ‘Bahrain Airport Modernisation Programme’.

The considerable expansion will increase Bahrain International Airport’s capacity to 14 million passengers per year. Four times larger than the current airport, the future 200,000-sq-m terminal will serve as a gateway to Bahrain once complete in 2019.

This is in addition to the service currently operated by Oman Air between Muscat and Calicut.

The three and a half hour flight will depart Salalah at 01.10 hrsand arrive in Calicut at 06.20 hrs. The return flight will leave Calicut at 07.00hrs and arrive in Salalah at 09.15hrs (local time).

The daily service will be operated by a Boeing 737-800. In addition the existing frequencies between Muscat and Calicut have been increased from one daily to twice daily since February this year.

Oman Air is growing its weekly capacity to India with frequencies increasing on five of the airline’s key Indian destinations. Bombay, Delhi and Hyderabad increase from twice daily to three times daily. Calicut increases from once daily to three times daily and Lucknow increases from once daily to twice daily.

The growth in capacity follows the revised flight agreement between the Government of Oman and India in December 2016, when the number of weekly seats was increased to 27,405 seats for both countries, compared to 21,145 seats, an increase of 6,258 seats per week.

Chief Executive Officer of Oman Air, Paul Gregorowitsch, commented: “Oman Air is committed to support the economic development of theDhofar region, which is a key market for us. We are extremely happy to announce this new direct service between Salalah and Calicut. Our valued guests who want to travel between Salalah and Calicut will now enjoy shorter flights as they don’t have to transfer at Muscat airport. We are sure that this route will be received well by the discerning guests.

“More travellers will have the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of Dhofar region’s with cool and refreshing weather, which contrasts sharply with the hot, dry climate to be found elsewhere in the region. In addition, visitors will also be able to make the most of the regions renowned hospitality, ancient culture and awe-inspiring landscapes.”

Oman Air’s most recent expansion consolidates its position at the start of 2017 to continue progress towards becoming a successful, sustainable company of the highest quality: “To Become the Best.”

Indian low-cost airline starts Sharjah-Kerala flights

IndiGo starts daily flights from Kozhikode on Monday and Thiruvananthapuram from April 8

IndiGo airlines will launch its first flights from Kerala to Sharjah on Monday, marking the low-cost airline’s second entry into the UAE after Dubai.
From Monday, IndiGo will fly daily non-stop return flights between Sharjah and Kozhikode, also known as Calicut. The airline also plans to fly daily return flights between Sharjah and the Kerala capital Thiruvananthapuram from April 8.
One-way tickets for both destinations will cost Dh242-245.
The two new routes aim to serve the growing number of business travellers and tourists between the Gulf and India, said Sanjay Kumar, IndiGo’s chief commercial officer.

IndiGo is “looking at providing affordable fares on these new routes,” Kumar said.
“[The] Middle East has been an important market for IndiGo. With rising business and tourism stemming from the Gulf market, IndiGo is determined to provide the best travel experience,” he added.
The airline claims to be one of the most punctual airlines in India, and runs a fleet of 129 Airbus A320 aircraft which make 883 daily flights to 44 destinations. The airline also claims to have captured around 40 per cent of India’s aviation market.
Sharjah is IndiGo’s sixth route outside of India. The airline also runs international routes to Muscat, Singapore, Bangkok and Kathmandu.

First E2s in the Middle East – Wataniya Airways

Wataniya Airways of Kuwait will be the first Middle Eastern airline to fly an E-Jet E2 when it starts taking delivery of 10 new E195-E2s in 2020. The carrier signed a contract for 10 firm orders and 10 purchase rights for Embraer’s largest E-Jet at the Farnborough Airshow today.

The E195-E2s will be configured with 12 Business Class and 106 Economy Class seats. Wataniya is the first airline to install seats in a staggered layout in the premium cabin on an E-Jet E2. These seats provide the ultimate in privacy, comfort and personal space since each one is slightly offset from its adjacent pair.

The airline intentionally chose the staggered arrangement “to differentiate ourselves from the competition,” according to Wataniya’s CEO, Rakan Al-Tuwaijri.

Wataniya’s E195-E2s will have 12 seats in a staggered layout (similar to this Embraer mock up layout) in its Business Class cabin.

The E195-E2’s range, superior operating economics, and all-new cabin interior will allow the airline “to open non-served markets and increase frequencies, delivering better connectivity to the Kuwait market,” says Mr. Al-Tuwaijri.

First-generation Embraer E-Jets have been flying in the Middle East since 2005.
