- PRESS RELEASE
RAK Airways, a national carrier of the UAE, has expanded its route network with flights to Peshawar and Lahore in Pakistan. Effective November 2011, RAK Airways will offer two flights a week to Peshawar and Lahore.
"Our first anniversary is just the beginning of a long and successful future for the airline. Over the next few months we will continue to add to our network, with a range of new destinations around the GCC, Indian sub-continent and beyond," added Jahameh.
With the addition of two new routes RAK Airways now flies to 8 destinations, Jahameh explained the cities had been strategically chosen, "The volume of foreign trade between the UAE and Pakistan amounted to $2.86bn last year, at a growth rate of 9%. With flights to Lahore, the country's second largest city and Peshawar, a major commercial hub, passengers can capitalize on the latent opportunities for trade that exist between the two countries. Furthermore, we will provide the UAE's Pakistani community with increased connections to travel home."
Included in every fare on every flight is a full hot meal and beverages served free on-board all flights, along with a baggage allowance of 30kg per passenger in addition to the normal hand baggage allowance. There is also a free shuttle service between other Emirates and RAK International Airport for each flight.
RAK Airways provides free parking for passengers who wish to drive to RAK International Airport which is just 30 minutes away from Sharjah and 45 minutes away from Dubai.
