Porsche pulls in

7 Days in Dubai - - BUSINESS -

The new Porsche 911 range has arr ived at Porsche Cen­tre Dubai. Speak­ing at the launch event, Vi­jay Rao, the cen­tre’s gen­eral man­ager, said: “The Porsche 911 is a car that has achieved iconic sta­tus and we are im­mensely pleased to be shar­ing its lat­est evo­lu­tion with our cus­tomers.” Mid­dle East air­line Sau­dia is to launch a low-cost car­rier that will op­er­ate do­mes­tic flights within the country. Saudi Di­rec­tor-Gen­eral Saleh bin Nasser Al Jasser wrote on Twit­ter that Flyadeal would de­liver “value for money to cost­con­scious cus­tomers” when it launches in mid-2017. He said: “#flyadeal will be a sin­gle class low-fare car­rier which means we are fo­cused on get­ting peo­ple from A to B for a fair price. “Low-cost fare does not mean low ser­vice so we will be world class in our fo­cus of giv­ing cus­tomers the best ser­vice pos­si­ble.” He said it would fea­ture a “sin­gle class and a high den­sity seat­ing con­fig­u­ra­tion so as to of­fer the best guest ex­pe­ri­ence at the low­est fare”. He did not state whether the air­line will serve the UAE, but said it would “ex­pect to serve the main trunk routes, in­clud­ing our cap­i­tal Riyadh, Jed­dah and Dam­mam and key re­gional mar­kets”. A num­ber of other Ara­bian Gulf coun­tries al­ready have low-fare air­lines in op­er­a­tion.
