Ras Al Khaimah, January 22, 2012
RAK Airways recently hosted a trip for a group of travel agents representing 15 travel agencies from across Kuwait as part of an initiative to generate awareness about the airline’s new daily service from Kuwait to Ras Al Khaimah.
The trip highlighted its value offering for Kuwaiti families and tourists, said a statement.
In addition to visiting Ras Al Khaimah’s landmarks and hotels including Iceland Waterpark, the Hilton Resort & Spa Ras Al Khaimah and The Cove Rotana Ras Al Khaimah, the agents also met with RAK Airways senior management and were briefed on the airline’s recent expansion of its GCC network.
RAK Airways recently increased its GCC footprint with the announcement of daily flights to Kuwait and Qatar. The carrier’s GCC network now covers Jeddah, Kuwait and Doha, the statement said.
RAK Airways began operations in October 2010 with two routes. Over the last twelve months the airline has focused on extending its route network across the GCC, the Indian sub-continent and North Africa; now operating to 10 destinations.
Included in the price of all fares is a full meal and beverages served complimentary on-board all flights, along with baggage allowance of 30kg per passenger in addition to the normal hand baggage allowance.
