RAK to resume flights in April

18 January 2009

RAK Airways, which last month suspended flights and made redundant 60 employees, plans to begin flying scheduled routes again in April, reported The National, citing the airline's CEO Mouin Yassine. The carrier, based in Ras al Khaimah, cut staff and terminated its regular service to Dhaka, Chittagong, Calicut and Colombo after seeing its fleet reduced from three aircraft to one. To help it resume operations by April, the airline was in negotiations to lease and purchase up to four Boeing single-aisle 737s, which would also support its charter services.
