MENAJET took to the skies this August, with a maiden flight to Dalaman on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast from Beirut International Airport.
MenaJet is promoted by Bahrain’s Gulf Finance House and the Al Zamil Group of Saudi Arabia and is envisaged as a low-cost intra-Arab airline that will focus the Middle East and Europe.
Coinciding with the inaugural flight, MenaJet also launched its website, menajet.com, an interactive portal which will offer a range of online services to passengers.
The debut chartered commercial flight, undertaken by MenaJet on behalf of Lebanese tour operator Nakhal, took off with a full payload of 155 passengers hours after the aircraft was received at Beirut International Airport by senior officials, representatives of MenaJet, and of its two principal shareholders, the Bahrain-based Islamic investment bank, Gulf Finance House and the Al Zamil Group.
MenaJet will initially fly to high-density destinations in the region. The airline is targeting continued growth in intra-Arab travel, one of the fastest growing aviation markets in the world.
