Multi-Hub Model Adds Value

• Air Arabia announced that it will take Egypt as a third base in a joint venture with Travco Group, which is favorable given Egypt’s attractive demographics and the absence of LCCs in the country.

• We considered three possible scenarios to assess the valuation impact of a multiple hub operation. Our favored scenario, involving adopting a sale-and-leaseback model, implies an upside of 36%.

• We maintain our price target of AED 1.26/share until further disclosure on Morocco and Egypt are made. Despite a more limited upside, we reiterate our “BUY” recommendation given potential added value from the other bubs.
