Jazeera Airways: “The acquisition of Sahaab perfectly complemented this plan [turn around plan] by providing us a vehicle to place excess aircraft on long-term leases with world-class carriers. This successfully introduced a new revenue stream for the company. Together, these initiatives successfully put the airline back on the road to profitability, as today we operate a profitable airline business and a profitable aircraft leasing business. Today, we are operating the right fleet size on profitable routes,” Marwan Boodai, Chairman. Source: Jazeera Airways, 08-Nov-2010.
