Following his ‘What’s happening in the world of the major low cost airlines serving the Gulf’ session, John gave us his predictions for 2016 and beyond. Here’s what he had to say:
The key points:
- The next 12 to 18 months for Saudi Arabian low cost air travel should be interesting.
- The government is opening up the market, liberalising somewhat and giving licensing to other operators.
- Saudi Arabian Airlines, Saudia, also announced they are planning to establish their own low cost carrier called Flyadeal.
- There will be lots of changes happening in this market.
