Silverjet will start a daily service from Dubai to London Luton this Monday. This comes on the back of expectations that the business airline is on track to break even by March 2008 when it unveils its interim results on Wednesday.
The carrier is tipped to report losses of between £2 to £4 million. Analysts reported in Thomson Financial News believe the start-up’s half-year revenue could top the £20 million mark—£10 million of which will have come from the charter operation discontinued mid-year
In respect to the Dubai flight, the luxury carrier has been warmly welcomed by the UAE’s elite and its first flight will be a landmark for the Emirates’ aviation.
With check-in required just 30 minutes prior to departure, customers can avoid queues and enjoy a range of personalized concierge services upon arrival, followed by a luxurious in-flight experience that takes them to their destination in comfort and style.
The innovative airline is also setting new standards in aviation by becoming the first airline of its kind to fly from Dubai, and the only commercial carrier to use the Executive Terminal at Dubai International Airport.
‘The long-awaited London launch has officially arrived, and Dubai couldn’t be more excited. Flying from the region has reached a whole new level and has now truly become sivilised,’ said Katherine Gershon, Silverjet’s Director of Sales and Marketing.
Silverjet flights will depart from the Executive Terminal at Dubai International Airport daily at 1030 and arrive in London Luton Airport at 1445. Return flights depart from the airline’s Private Terminal at London Luton at 2100 and arrive in Dubai the next day at 0830.
Connecting flights to New York Newark will also be available, departing London Luton Airport at 1645.
