Air Arabia wins awards, open new route

air aribaSharjah : Air Arabia, the Middle East and North Africa’s first and largest low-cost carrier, announced that it has been recognised in two categories of the prestigious Annual Oman Airport Management Company (OAMC) Awards.
The awards, which took place at the Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa in Muscat, honour the most successful airlines and retailers operating at Muscat and Salalah’s international airports.
Air Arabia was honoured for the enormous success of its Salalah operations. The first award recognised the total number of passengers carried by Air Arabia to the popular Omani tourism destination in 2014, while the second marked the significant percentage growth in these figures over the past year.
Air Arabia was the first UAE airline to offer services to the city of Salalah when it began a weekly service in June 2012. Following strong passenger demand, within a year, it had increased operations to three flights per week.
Air Arabia’s total coverage of the UAE-Oman route is 23 flights per week. It operates sixteen weekly flights between Sharjah and Muscat, in addition to its three weekly flights between Sharjah and Salalah, connecting passengers in Oman to more than 100 destinations worldwide. The airline also operates four weekly flights to Muscat from its second UAE hub in Ras Al Khaimah, offering passengers another great connection to the Indian Subcontinent and North Africa.
Adds Nepal to Ras Al Khaimah
From late February, the airline announced Kathmandu as the latest destination from the recently launched Ras Al Khaimah hub. The low-cost carrier is flying twice weekly to Kathmandu, the 10th destination which travellers can now access from the Northern Emirates.
Adel A. Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer of Air Arabia, said, “In just 9 months, we have reached the milestone of ten exciting destinations to which our customers can fly using Ras Al Khaimah Airport. Customers can now enjoy great connectivity to Nepal from both, Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah International Airports. We look forward to adding more routes in the future from our second hub in the UAE as the emirate’s travel and tourism sector continue to enjoy significant growth.”
Air Arabia’s first flight from Ras Al Khaimah International Airport, its second hub in the UAE, took off on May 6, 2014, to Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. It has since added direct services to Muscat in Oman; Dhaka and Chittagong in Bangladesh; Cairo in Egypt; and Islamabad, Lahore and Peshawar in Pakistan and Doha in Qatar.
