Even when times are bad, we are very good!


We don't want to be the biggest Airline. We aim to be the best!


The time has come to communicate our plans for 2017.


Next year we will:

- renew all the narrow-body fleet. The A321neo will be the backbone of our fleet. 

- continue the renew of the wide-body fleet. The A350 will be the aircraft replacing the A300, the A330 and the A340's.

- increase our terminal in AUH even with more space and more quality.

- be out looking for a new partner in India, that can offer us the best domestic flights in that country.

- continue to give our partners the best help. 


Hope 2017 will bring good flights for everyone!!!

After 4 months operating in 2017, the CEO of Arabic Gateway Air Services has issued the following new press release.
"Troughout first 4 months of this year, our group has been collecting excellent results, both in terms of costumers figures and económic terms.
The quality of our Airlines has increased with several new aircfrats and some new routes. Better services Abu Dhabi with our new terminal.
However, our growth is now stopped due to the market reduction. Therefore, the replacement of the Medium-haul fleet is suspeded. Altough the 321neo is still waiting to rollout, we will keep our confidance in airbus.
The long-haul fleet replacement will slowly continue.
We are still looking for a partner that can complete our network in India. We have aircfrats at very low price to lease out.

As last, we give notice of our new low-cost airline that will start in Dubai World Central. Arabian Wings will operate to regional airports, adding more destinations to our network.

Best regards"

Press Release from our CEO:

" Altough times are severe in aviation world, Arabic Gateway Group remains with huge profits week after week.

Our main Ailrlines hub in AUH is at 2% slot free, and some bussiness expansion was needed. 

A cargo airline was started to complete our network worldwide. The experience in Argentina was a failure, and a lesson to learn.

Our network remains with a 78% LF even with AGEX bellow 700. 


As a result of Paris Air Show, more 10 A350 were aquired to complete the longhaul network from AUH.


We now come to inform that 70 brand new A321neo will be bought from Airbus. This will give a major boost to our fleet and keep our service standards very high.


Even tough times are hard and some harsh decisions may be arround the corner"


Best Regards"
