Low cost airline cancels Oman routes

Flights to Muscat and Salahah cancelled despite services being advertised on Jazeera website.

Low-cost carrier Jazeera Airways has canceled its flights to Salahah despite continued advertising of the route to the Omani resort town on its website.

Flights to the southern Omani resort were discontinued at the beginning of October, according to staff at the Kuwaiti airline.

“There was no reason [to continue]...sometimes only ten people were on the flight,” one member of staff told Arabian Business.

Flights were also stopped to the capital city of Muscat nearly a year said staff. Both flights are still advertised on the airline’s website.

In November the firm’s chief executive said the airline would delay a secondary stock market listing in Dubai, planned for this year, blaming poor market conditions.  

Marwan Boodai told newswire Reuters the company would maintain its $14.8 million profit target despite the global financial crisis which has hit airlines.

The airline was not immediately available for comment.
