Oman to have low-cost carrier by H1 2014

Oman's Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) has announced the sultanate is to have at least one low-cost carrier by the first half of 2014, with the possibility of more licences being awarded, Muscat Daily has reported. Low-cost carriers currently enjoy a seven to 10% share of the Oman market, which is dominated by foreign low-cost airlines such as flydubai, Air Arabia, Indigo and others. "In the most developed markets the share of low-cost carriers is roughly 20-30%," said PACA chief, Salim Nasser Said al Aufi. "This shows that the Oman market holds great promise and that is why we want to introduce a local low-cost carrier that can serve the local market," he added.
