Aabar Investments have revealed their partnership with Virgin Galactic to fly from Abu Dhabi to Los Angeles in a mere two hours. Aabar currently has 32% stake at Sir Richard Bronson’s space project, which aims to take civilians into outer space by 2011 and charging each passenger a good $200,000 (roundtrip of course).

This ambitious idea to fly from the Middle East to the West Coast is such a dramatically short period of time seems like a great PR stunt to build awareness for Virgin Galactic and also re-enforce the UAE’s position as the innovations hub in the Middle East. The exact date of the flight has not been announced as of yet.
