RAK eyes increasing Jeddah flights

Ras Al Khaimah, U.A.E.- RAK Airways, a national carrier
of the UAE, has revealed it is examining the possibility of increasing the
frequency of its Jeddah flights to meet high passenger demand- particularly
from Calicut.

A group of travel agents representing 17 travel agencies from across
Calicut recently visited Ras Al Khaimah as part of RAK Airways initiative
to generate awareness about its new visa services package, which aims to
promote tourism into Ras Al Khaimah.

In addition to experiencing Ras Al Khaimah's landmarks which included the
WOW RAK theme park; Golden Tulip Resort Khatt Springs ; the Hajar mountain
range and Banyan Tree Al Wadi, travel agents also met with RAK Airways CEO,
Omar Jahameh and highlighted the market demand for additional flights to
Jeddah due to a surge in traffic between Calicut and Saudi Arabia's
business hub.

RAK Airways CEO, Omar Jahameh said, "RAK Airways has seen a steady increase
in demand for passengers wanting to fly between Calicut and Jeddah; we
currently operate four flights a week to Jeddah however we are looking to
increase our service on this busy route so our Keralite passengers
traveling to Saudi Arabia on either business or for Umrah and Haj can take
advantage of more frequent, convenient connections."

RAK Airways recently introduced a visa services package for passengers
flying into Ras Al Khaimah from India; the package starting from AED 1200
includes a visitor visa and return airfare and can be availed through any
RAK Airways office.

RAK Airways offers five flights a week to Calicut departing from Ras Al
Khaimah International Airport at 1610.

Bookings can be made online at www.rakairways.com; through phoning a 24-
hour call centre on 971-7-2075000; through sales offices in Ras Al Khaimah,
Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman and Umm Al-Quwain as well as Calicut and Jeddah; and
through appointed travel agents.
