Aviation headlines in the Middle East tend to be dominated by the ambitious sixth freedom hub players (the ‘Big Three’: Emirates, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways). However, there are some major developments at the second tier full service carriers in the region, such as Oman Air, Royal Jordanian, Gulf Air and Middle East Airlines, as featured in this report. These carriers are reshaping competition in and beyond the region and are being reshaped themselves by dynamic change in the Middle East.
Gulf Air recently announced plans to undertake another phase of restructuring under the guidance of newly appointed CEO, Samer Majali, commencing in the coming months. Mr Majali commenced his tenure in early Aug-2009. However, the carrier is yet to provide any details of the restructuring plan.
HONG KONG (Cathay Pacific) - Royal Jordanian will be the first carrier from the Levant, Middle East and Gulf region to be elected on board any of the global airline groupings - and the first airline accepted to join oneworld for more than five years.
