Wataniya Airways Flying Soon

Post by Mark

Last time I posted about Wataniya Airways, I mentioned they were supposed to start flying early this year but that didn’t happen. Now my contact at Wataniya Airways has reached out to me to let me know that they might start flying from next month, if not by August at the very latest.

Wataniya Airways have applied to travel to 16 destinations and are just waiting approval from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). The airline will have three different classes this time around; Wataniya Business, Wataniya Premium and Wataniya Seat. Wataniya Premium is their premium economy while Wataniya Seat is their regular economy class. Their first aircraft is ready and there are some videos and pictures of it already floating around on twitter. You can check them out [Here].

Once they start flying again, they’ll be flying out of Sheikh Saad Airport Terminal exactly like they used to. For now, you can follow them on their instagram account which went live last week @wataniyaairways

    They dont even have an approved AOC. They wont even start flying and they have terrible management. Unprofessional setup

    Why everybody is negative about wataniya airways? Jazeera owners dont want them to start plus many others why?!

    the Past Wataniya was fine, and the only problem was the management was the worse in the history of Aviation. butt now normal investors started working and get this bird in the air. so stop being negative guys.
