Air Arabia, as a national carrier of Sharjah, has been successful in targeting its customers since its start. The reason behind this is that they were able to create awareness in customers’ mind thought tight marketing strategies and through campaigns. Currently, Air Arabia knows that within last 5-7 years, many low-cost carriers were introduced plus the big airlines have also started to reduce their tickets prices. So Air Arabia, along with low prices, started to give many services with the same prices. Recently, Air Arabia started giving their customers easy visa services but for that awareness was necessary, so they started doing outdoor campaigns using billboards everywhere where they felt is a good place to attract customers, especially in UAE. They also provided their customers with “King Meals” which they can order online when purchasing tickets and can also order on board. They also provided their customers with more leg spaces so that they can have their journey in a more comfortable way.
Air Arabia has also recently started product-print campaigns, in which they show their customers some special product which their customers relate themselves like showing a clock with headphones and telling that their customer service is now 24 hours, showing remote control and putting keys arrangements as in their fleets and telling their customers that now they can reserve their favorite seats, either the middle seats or window ones.
Air Arabia has also joined another campaign which was started by BUAV against animals’ cruelty. The animals were used to be transferred in air to other countries for experiments. Air Arabia joined their campaign named “Cargo Cruelty Campaign” to have a positive image in the minds of their…...

Mtv Arabia the Challenge

...brand which introduced the concept of a cable music channel. It was launched in America in 1981 and quickly its popularity spread to other similar channels across the world. Over the years MTV developed a reputation for providing programmes with a localized content without diluting down what MTV stood for. MTV using its open western culture and sometimes controversial content was known to air sexually explicit and provocative programmes to a youthful audience. The Middle East is highly individual and religiously and politically sensitive region with no fewer than 35 Arabic regional dialects. However with a cash rich oil industry and a population of some 120 million people under 25, it is no wonder MTV joined forces with Arabia Media Group (largest media group in UAE) to launch the Arabic version of MTV in November 2007. As a free to air music television channel, it was launched and rebranded as MTV Middle East. MTV Arabia shows Arabic music videos and locally produced programmes as well as popular US programmes such as the “The Hills” and “Jackass.” There are approx. 370 other free to air channels in the region. The market is reported to be worth 2.5bn to 3bn US dollars and is growing at a rate of approximately 30%. Another important factor is that there is no established TV rating system which means advertisement slots are being sold against shows that the ruling families in the region vote to be good! ......

Culture: Saudi Arabia and Lebanon

...Contrast between Lebanon and Saudi Arabia Culture is one of the treasured traits the some countries carry on throughout centuries, even during our time today. However, although some countries cherish their culture and value it, humans get so caught up with their everyday life routine that they tend to forget their culture and diminish their traditions. Culture is what makes us different that everyone else. Each country has its own culture and celebrations. For example, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia are two Middle Eastern countries that share the same language. Although these countries have some similarities, there is a wide variety of differences between them when it comes to politics, tradition and religion. Both countries share a common religion: Islam. Moreso, there are plenty of other religions in Lebanon. Islam is portrayed in more strict and conservative way in Saudi Arabia. In Saudi Arabia, religion plays a huge role in culture, traditions, and even politics. Religion is used as a way of living more than just a belief. For example, religion is tied in with women’s right and politics. No matter what religion they practice, women have to be covered from head to toes even if they were tourists visiting the country. It is the law. According to the editor Tore Kjeilen, “Officially Muslims constitute 100% of the population, but considering the considerable expatriate community, 90% is a better estimate. Even among citizens, there are non-Muslims,......

...My first day in United States Why many people from Saudi Arabia choose the United States to study? Why did I choose the United States to complete my master’s degree? Many people choose the U.S.A because to many things for example, there are a lot of universities in U.S.A and they are many states in it. My story of my first day in U.S.A and my experience what I learned from one day in the U.S.A maybe I cannot learn ever without I travel to it. My story of travel to the U.S and what I learned from it was interesting. The story begging on the first day for me in the United States. I was really afraid because I could not speak English. I knew just some simple words as yes and no. also, I didn’t know anyone in the U.S.A. when I arrived to Portland’s airport I just took my big and went outside. I saw the taxi and I tried to explain to him where I wanted to go. After ten mints he understood me, but he tried to explain to me it’s a faraway and that cost me a lot of money because I went to Frost Grove. It takes one hour and 30mints. I didn’t understood him but I said okay. When I arrived to the hotel I saw the meter side $150! That time I smiled and I understood what he was trying to say to me.

Lawrence of Arabia

...Movie Review: Lawrence of Arabia Script I believe the script was very much profound. There had been quite a lot of twists in the story which made me eager to find out what could happen next. It also showed what a man can do for people regardless of his race and religion. It showed how great the influence of a person who was not even one of their own yet was able to unite them as a nation. Acting In some parts of the movie, I found the acting a little bit clumsy. When one of the slaves of Lawrence fell into the quicksand, the acting was a bit stiff. When an Arab shot the people at the train, some of them fell in front instead of going backwards since they were shot from the front. Also, when Lawrence was shot by the soldier from the left, his wound was on the right which was quite impossible. Moreover, Lawrence kept moving naturally as if he weren’t shot. He could even move his right hand and shoulder. Directing David Lean’s directing gave a lot of insights about what the actors could do. He was able to challenge the actors to act and express themselves which the situation asks of them. It’s just that he became a little careless on some parts which made the actors look clumsy. Cinematography In the movie, it was able to show the things that really needed to be shown like the expression of the actors, details in the movie and many more. The only thing that needed more work was about the lighting during the night. I could barely see what was happening when it was......

Mtv Arabia

...MTV Networks: The Arabian Challenge TEACHING NOTE ABSTRACT MTV Networks (MTVN) had over the years developed a reputation for its ability to provide localized content without diluting what MTV stood for. However, the company faced the most challenging test in late 2007 with its launch of MTV Arabia in the Middle East, which some experts considered as the biggest launch in the channel’s history. While the market in the Middle East offered MTVN with huge opportunities due to its huge youth populace, MTV’s controversial content that was known for angering religious, political, and conservative communities could easily backfire in the conservative environment prevalent in the region. On the other hand, too much localization to suit the tastes of the region could dilute MTV’s global brand. The case discusses in detail the strategy adopted by MTVN to enter and expand in the Middle East and also the challenges faced by the channel. TEACHING OBJECTIVES & TARGET AUDIENCE The case will help the students to: • Understand the issues and challenges in entering and expanding operations in new markets which were culturally different from the organizations home/traditional/existing markets. • Understand the pros and cons of entering a new market with a standardized/adapted product to suit local preferences. • Analyze MTVN’s strategy in the Middle East, identify challenges and explore strategies that the channel could adopt in the future This case......
