Air Arabia, the first low fares airline of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa region, is set to showcase for the second year running on the Sharjah Commerce & Tourism Development Authority stand at Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2005, being held at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 3-6 May. Completing 18 months of operations at the end of this month, Air Arabia recently announced its first year financial results - financially breaking even, growing from 5 to 16 destinations, a team of over 300 employees, flying 5,398 sectors and logging over 13,000 flight hours with a fleet of 5 aircraft Airbus A320s. "This time last year Air Arabia was still in its infancy, we were 6 months old and flying to 9 countries, now we fly to 16 and carried approximately 700,000 passengers up to the end of 2004," said Adel Ali, Air Arabia's CEO. He added: "The regional acceptance of this new travel concept has been enormous. We can only look to grow travel within the region and neighbouring countries and continue to offer a safe, efficient and competitive method of air travel to all types of travelers - for business, holidays, visiting family and simply experiencing what the region has to offer." Exhibiting as part of the Sharjah stand, the airline will be encouraging visitors to sample the Air Arabia experience and Sharjah, the airline's hub.
