Middle East Low Cost No Frills Airlines
After several years of gathering momentum, the low cost revolution is set to dramatically transform the Middle East and North Africa region in 2008.
In December 2007 Saudi Arabia's sama flew beyond the KSA's borders for the first time, going into competition against Jazeera Airways and Air Arabia. In January 2008, Bahrain Air launches, pitting itself against the other three low cost carriers.
The most exciting development in 2008 will be when Air Arabia establishes a new hub in Morocco, making flights between Europe and the Middle East more affordable than they have ever been.
For those budget travellers planning a their own DIY round-the-world low cost itinerary, things are looking up as Kuwait, Dubai and Sharjah compete to be the low cost transfer hub of choice between Europe, the Middle East and South Asia.
