About Air Arabia LLC.Air Arabia LLC was established as a fully fledged commercial airline of the United Arab Emirates on 3rd February 2003 by an Ameeri decree issued by His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohamed Al Qassimi, the Ruler of Sharjah and Member of the Supreme Council of the UAE. The Air Arabia fleet consists of two modern A320 aircraft, flying directly to the following destinations: Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Sri Lanka and Syria. This year Air Arabia plans to expand its fleet to four Airbus A320 aircraft, flying to more destinations.In this case study (report) I will go throw the external environment to assess the viability of this operation using the Porter's five-force analysis, as an advice manager for this company I have to use the forces influencing the decisions of the Air Arabia airline to enter the UAE Market with a unique strategy. Porter's framework, known as the Five-Forces model, focuses on five forces that shape competition within an industry:* The risk of entry by potential competitors.* The degree of rivalry among established companies within an industry.* The bargaining power of buyers.* The bargaining power of suppliers.* The threat of substitute products.1.

In addition they have to continue to investing in advertisement in all kind of media domestic and worldwide.So, I think that there is a very low risk, even that the UAE government regulations is allowing any business to be opened.
