Emirates to Launch Low Fare Carrier

After the success of Jazeera Airways and Air Arabia, Emirates announced that it will launch a low fare carrier to serve the region.  Given the number of expatriot workers in the area, it makes a ton of sense to segment off some of the low fare traffic and allow aircraft to be used on higher yield routes.  Assuming the new venture uses Dubai as a hub, it will further fortify the airport as the leading destination in the region, and should give Jazeera and Air Arabia a bit of worry — especially Air Arabia which serves Sharjah airport less than an hour from Dubai.
