Rotana Jet adds more flights to Sir Bani Yas Island to meet rising demand

July 7th, 2013 Rotana Jet, the growing airline from the UAE, is to increase capacity on its services to Sir Bani Yas Island from August 1st, 2013, with the addition of two more flights per week, the airline announced today.

The flights, which will operate between Al Bateen Executive Airport in Abu Dhabi and Sir Bani Yas Island on Sundays and Wednesdays, will increase the total number of weekly flights serving Sir Bani Yas to five.

“This increase in capacity in just one year of our operation to Sir Bani Yas Island, where we flew over 10,000 people, demonstrates Rotana Jet’s continuing commitment to the destination.” said Rajendran Vellapalath, Rotana Jet’s Commercial and Planning Director. “These additional flights will enable more people to visit the island, whether to spend a day exploring the Arabian Wildlife Park, experience many of the leisure activities in the island or for overnight stays,” he added.

The new flights will be operated with Embraer jet aircraft in a single class configuration, adding 250 seats each way per week on the route.

Sultan Al Mahmoud, TDIC’s Executive Director of Strategic Performance, said, “Rotana Jet’s additional flights to Sir Bani Yas come at exiting times for TDIC, with the opening of new developments on the island, including the new Anantara Sir Bani Yas Al Yamm Villa Resort which was launched last week. This increase in flight capacity will not only provide greater accessibility for a wider audience seeking an alternative-stay experience, but is also a testament to the island’s increasing popularity.”
