Al Maha is a new hi-bred service airline, a subsidiary of Qatar Airways and will reflect the best operational and technical aspects of that airline.
Al Maha means oryx, a native animal to the Arabian peninsula. The oryx is Qatar’s logo and Qatar employs the the Al Maha term when referring to premium hospitality, so there are some ties in name to Qatar Airways.
The fleet type will be Airbus A320-216 with CFMI engines, being delivered new from Airbus commencing in December 2014 and growing to eight aircraft by December 2015. The medium term growth is to grow the fleet to thirty aircraft by the end of 2017.
Sigma is now accepting expressions of interest for all A320 Instructors and Examiners to become part of the initial cadre at this exciting new airline.
