Arab Wings international plans take flight
Jordan's Arab Wings is looking to acquire a company with an AOC in Europe and has set up two new bases to open up markets in the UAE and Saudi Arabia.

Jordan's Arab Wings is looking to acquire a company with an AOC in Europe and has set up two new bases to open up markets in the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Ahmad Abu Ghazaleh, ceo, says the company will base a Challenger 605 in Sharjah and operate under the auspices of sister company Gulf Wings to offer aircraft management. It will also set up the joint venture Luxury Wings in Bahrain to target Saudi Arabia.

Arab Wings, which has built a 10-strong fleet, is the sister company of the Royal Jordanian Air Academy and the Queen Noor Civil Aviation Technical College. Ghazaleh says: "International expansion will increase our charter services to businessmen and the medical evacuations as well as aircraft management."

Arab Wings recently signed an agreement with Al-Markazia Central Trade and Auto Company, Lexus dealer in Saudi Arabia, to provide limousine chauffeured transport as part of its regional expansion programme.
