ROTANA JET (no connection to the hotel chain) is the first UAE regional jet operator. It will be operating two (2) EMBRAER EMB145 regional jets with a fifty (50) passengers capacity. The plan is to operate three(3) weekly flights to the island. Flights to Ras Alkhaimah, Fujairah and Al Ain are planned for the near future with possibly Dubai at a later date.

ROTANA JET ( started as a corporate jet operator. The airline is introducing a new means of connecting the northern emirates to Abu Dhabi with the aim of encouraging nationals and expatriates alike to travel within the UAE and enhancing tourism to Abu Dhabi.

Kudos for having the vision and the courage to start an intra emirates operation.
