New airline to operate from Fujairah

A new Fujairah-based airline is set to launch operations next year offering "low cost" tickets, Gulf News has reported. The carrier is expected to fly to main cities in the Gulf countries by January 2012 and later to the Indian subcontinent, Captain Alex de Vos, president and CEO of Al Hajjar Aviation Consultancy in Fujairah told the daily. "We won't be a 'budget' airline per se, we're not competing with [Sharjah's] Air Arabia [for example]," de Vos said. "Our pricing model will be based on very low-cost operations to the passengers, but offer full flight services on board at the same time."
