La compagnie de Ras Al Khaimah ( E.A.U ) suspend ses activités. Mauvaise surprise ! ( le tuyau était percé....ou c'était une vanne)

UAE-based RAK Airways has been scrapped after less than two years in operation, the
crown prince and deputy ruler of Ras al-Khaimah said in comments published on Sunday, the latest casualty of the global economic downturn.

“RAK Airways is no longer in service. To the best of my knowledge, RAK Airways is working on a plan regarding what will happen now,” Sheikh Saud bin Saqr al-Qasimi was quoted as saying by UAE daily Emirates Business.

“In my opinion, the commercial benefits were not there and there was no point keeping it (RAK
Airways) in business.”

RAK Airways, the UAE’s fourth airline, launched operations in November 2007 with a service to Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The airline serviced six destinations, including Colombo, Beirut and Sofia, according to its website.

The airline started operations with two Boeing 757-200s and in February 2008 signed a deal of four 737-800s with purchase rights for two additional 737s, worth around $300 million.

Airlines have suffered due to the global downturn as people cut back on travel.

IATA has warned Middle East airlines will lose $900 million in 2009 due to the downturn, with any increase in passenger traffic cancelled out by rising capacity.
