By MARK SUMMERS

A TOP aviation official yesterday denied Bahrain was set to be a key base for a new international airline, despite claims to the contrary on the carrier's website.

The new carrier, calling itself Ajwaa, has begun construction of a website which names Bahrain as the site of its head office, displays images of commercial airliners with the Bahraini flag on their livery and advertises flights to a number of international destinations from Bahrain International Airport.

However, Civil Aviation Affairs Assistant Under-Secretary for Airport Services Nabeel Taqi rejected any possibility of a new carrier of that name coming to Bahrain.

"Forget this, it's all nonsense," he said.

"We don't have this kind of airline. We have not authorised them to operate out of Bahrain."

An official at Ajwaa's Bahrain office, who asked not to be named, had earlier confirmed the new venture was gearing up to fly to destinations from this country, but said they were unable to reveal any further information.

The firm's website flyajwaa.com features advertising for two flights a day to Cairo - one from Bahrain and one from Dammam in Saudi Arabia - at a cost of BD67 for a one-way trip.

Under the motto "discover our friendly skies", Ajwaa - which is Arabic for airspace - also lists Damascus, Dubai, Jeddah, Karachi and Mumbai as destinations it plans to serve.

A well-placed aviation source told GDN that the firm had plans to source infrastructure from Egypt to operate from Bahrain, but said the firm had not yet submitted a request for the necessary permits to allow it to fly to and from Bahrain International Airport.

Mr Taqi was emphatic in stating that whatever its website might suggest, Ajwaa has not been granted permission to start operations from Bahrain.

"I am telling you it's not true," he said.

Aj...what?
Man where do you get these names? Nothing against the Arabic language but doesn't anyone believe in a brand that will sell to everyone? No offence..I may yet fly with this outfit but...surely, there is a more marketable names than that!
How about Desert Falcon (oops, too close to GF) or...I know, Desert Storm? Hmmmm...maybe not.
I got it!!!! PearlAir!! Pretty wussy but still better than AJWAA!!!

Dude...I'm sure there are plenty of native arabic speakers out there who might have a thing or 2 to say about an airline named "Virgin"
Not too far from there is another one called 'Sama'..endless supply of jokes there.
Different strokes n all that...

Ajwaa is the name of the best variety of dates, Prophet Mohammmeds(pbuh) favourite type, eating 7 a day is said to prevent a whole lot of ailments and even cure some diseases.

But naming an airline after this is really silly, I dont know what Ajwaa means though maybe it has a nice meaning which matters more to Arabs than how it sounds to foreigners.

As for Sama, whats the joke surrounding that name?

Sorry, you are wrong :=

Ajwaa the date is totally different from Ajwaa the sky in Arabic, they are spelled and pronounced differently with different words and have nothing in common,
But I have to admit, it was a good try and good dates,:ok:

I suggest we re-title this thread: "New name for Bahrain Upstart Airline"

I'll start us off.....;)

How about "Flying Virgins with the best Dates"!?
Anyone care to translate in Arabic for us?

You need to make sure that they really are 'Extra Virgins'...and you're not gettin ripped off with tart-oil.

...Eating 7 of these 'Virgins' per day may leave you with many diseases and a whole lot of ailments'
