Today, with our second consecutive quarter of double digit growth we are beginning to see the positive returns of these investments on our bottom line. On the network front, the next two quarters are equally exciting. We’re launching five new destinations in November and December, while we continue to develop our exclusive terminal at Kuwait International Airport to accept its first passenger in Q1, 2018. Our outlook for the last quarter of the year is in line with historic Q4 trends for the regional travel sector, when we typically see demand picking up towards the second half of December”
