Al Ghaith said “We started 2010 with a determination to add new and exciting destinations to our route network. With our recent announcements of destinations as far apart as Istanbul, Lucknow, and Karachi, we have delivered on our promise to establish ourselves as affordable, accessible airline with a professional service and a network to be proud of by the anniversary of our first flight.”
