Topics: Olympics, Greece

Thursday, 3 June 2004

If you are interested in traveling to the Olympics but the high cost of flights to Athens, Greece is keeping you home, your prospects for a happy summer just got better.

Syria's Al Queda Air is offering special one way fares from New York to Athens, via Damascus. Major airline fares which have been running over $1,000.00 round trip will have a hard time competing with the $39.99 fares offered by Al Queda Air.

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, president of Al Queda Air described the reduced fares as, "a bargain, because we want the American people to know we're here and that we care."

An emerging player in the discount airfare game, Al Queda Air is a no-frills airline which keeps costs down by providing few services. "The cabin is not pressurized, and there is no heat. We provide toilet facilities only if you purchase bottled water, and do not bring your chickens or goats. We don't have the room."

Though less than a year old Al Queda Air has established a record as a safe and profitable carrier. "We think that by the time the Olympics are over the whole world will know about Al Queda Air," al-Zarqawi said with a smile. "We plan to make quite an impact."
