Today, with our second consecutive quarter of double digit growth we are beginning to see the positive returns of these investments on our bottom line. On the network front, the next two quarters are equally exciting. We’re launching five new destinations in November and December, while we continue to develop our exclusive terminal at Kuwait International Airport to accept its first passenger in Q1, 2018.
