RAK Airport sees fast growth in movements and revenues

Posted 4 May 2013 · 1 Comment

RAK International Airport in the northern UAE has recorded first quarter results showing more than 30% increase revenues and a 42% growth in aircraft movements.

 

“The first quarter 2013 performance is the result of a combination of carefully thought through factors such as collaborative teamwork, cohesive supply chain, attractive prices, product innovation and continuous energy and focus on our customer’s needs and requirements,” said CEO, Andrew Gower.
“With Ras Al Khaimah being the northern gateway to the UAE and just 45 minutes from Dubai via road, RAK International Airport is able to provide tourists and visitors an alternate and faster approach to the country due to its relatively free skies and faster immigration check-in and checkout.”
Gower said the airport will be focusing on providing attractive maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) facilities, promoting public and private partnerships, training and highlighting its cargo activities.
RAK Airport have been exploring regional opportunities. It has looked at Saudi Arabia as a new feeder market and was at the Riyadh Travel Fair, as well as the Afghanistan Air Cargo & Logistics Conference. It will also be exhibiting at the Arabian Travel Market (ATM in Dubai this week.
The airport is targeting charter and scheduled airlines following recent successes of routes from the Russian Federation, which started last year.
“Five of the global 10 fastest growing markets for international passenger traffic are among the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) with the others in Latin America, Africa and the Asia-Pacific region,” explained Gower. “We have had tremendous response from chartered and scheduled airlines from the CIS and Europe flying into our airport which explains the growth in aircraft movements and revenues last quarter.”
