Ras Al Khaimah's latest attempt to establish its own airline will culminate with the commencement of flights in two weeks' time.

The emirate will restart services with RAK Airways, under another new colour scheme, operating to the cities of Jeddah, in Saudi Arabia, and Kozhikode in India.

RAK Airways states that flights will begin on 10 October. Chief executive Omar Jahameh says that it will offer competitive fares – as low as Dhs10 ($2.70) – but insists that it is not a low-cost carrier.

The airline will offer complimentary catering, seat selection upon booking and a free shuttle service from the airport.

RAK Airways has shown off its new livery on one of its aircraft, a Boeing 737-400 formerly operated by carriers including Air Berlin.
