Bahrain Air

Read this today in the Gulf Daily News and just have to wonder if his is the way to start your operations.

Airline launch 'delayed by training' By SOMAN BABY
THE launch of Bahrain Air, the kingdom's first privately owned, low-cost airline, has been delayed.
It was due to be launched today, but sources said it was now likely to begin operations in the first week of next month.
Management officials could not be reached for comment, but sources said the delay was connected to staff training.
Two aircraft have already been leased and the crew training is being held in Amman, they revealed.
The carrier, which also offers business class, will use a Airbus A320 fleet - with 12 seats in business and 150 in economy.
The pilots and cabin crew recruited by the airline are undergoing training at the Royal Jordanian Air Academy.
Chairman Shaikh Mohammed bin Abdulla Al Khalifa and managing director Ibrahim Al Hamer announced the launch of the airline at a Press conference in late November.
They revealed that the airline's fleet would have four aircraft by April and five by the end of the year.
Bahrain Air will initially fly on Bahrain, Dubai, Mashad, Beirut and Alexandria routes.
The destinations will be increased to 14 by April next year, 23 - including the Indian subcontinent - by 2009 and 25 by 2010, Mr Al Hamer said at the time. The airline has already signed agreements with several travel agents in the country.
The company has an authorised capital of BD10 million and a fully paid-up capital of BD8m.
Other board members are Bahraini businessmen Faisal Jawad and Ali Al Musallam and Saudi businessman Khalid Al Sadoun.
The airline's headquarters is in Arad.
