Kang Pacific Airlines was established in 2006 and launched in 2008 with a goal to operate as Fujairah's first low cost airline. Kang Pacific Airlines (KPA) was initially planned to shuttle passengers between Fujairah and three key countries: the UK, India, and the Philippines.
In 2008, Kang Pacific launched its maiden flight to the Philippines, operating initially with two leased DC-10s. Kang Pacific Airline flights started and stopped in June 2008 It's only flight was on 6 June 2008, from Fujairah to Manila and back. The airline sent notices to passengers that the flights had been cancelled, and that they should contact the KPA office for refunds.
