Red carpet welcome likely for new UAE airline Kang Pacific

27 August, 2007:

JFujairah’s air travelers are reported to be eagerly waiting to see the quality of services that will be on offer when the new UAE-based airline Kang Pacific begins commercial services out of Fujairah.

Kang Pacific, which would be the fifth airline in the UAE, is expected to be under passenger scrutiny and will attract comparison between majors such as Emirates, Etihad, and Air Arabia, as well as another newcomer RAK Airline. Passengers are most likely to check the price, safety record and comforts provided for economy tickets before traveling with the airline.

Meanwhile, Fujairah residents, who believe that the new airline would make life better, have welcomed the prospect of an airline closer to home, which could spell an end to the ritual commute to Sharjah or Dubai to travel. They have been forced to drive two hours to Dubai for the past four years en route to Nigeria or the UK.

The expected arrival of the new airline is also seen as a boost to tourism. According to tourism players, it was particularly good news for the tourism industry, with easier access to the popular coastal retreat. The airline, which is expected to start operations in October 2007, will initially operate flights to Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines.
