The airline began operations from October 28, said Jyotsna Kaur Habibullah, marketing manager. Replying to questions from TradeArabia, Habibullah said the operating costs would be kept low. A series of cost-saving strategies have been adopted to control operating costs. These include operating one type of aircraft - resulting in saving on training, maintenance, spare parts and crew training; faster turnaround of aircraft - maximum aircraft utilization; optimum crew utilization, ticket-less airline - helping save on cost of printing and handling traditional airline tickets. A return fare to Bahrain is Dh336 including taxes. She said the airline operated two Airbus A320 planes currently and would be expanding with the acquisition of two more by March 2004.
