Air Arabia, a Middle East and North Africa-based low-cost carrier (LCC), has revealed a new route to Sheremetyevo International Airport. Set to go live on the 1 February, 2018, the airport will be the second airport served by Air Arabia in Moscow.
The addition of the new route, which complements Air Arabia’s existing daily services to Moscow’s Domodedovo International Airport, is expected to double the airline’s flights to the Russian capital.
The airline has shared that the flight will operate four times a week on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday. The flight will depart from Sharjah International Airport (SHJ) at 09:10 hours, and is scheduled to arrive at Sheremetyevo International Airport (SVO) at 13:35 local time.
The return flight will depart Sheremetyevo at 14:35, landing in Sharjah by 20:45 local tim
“We are pleased to serve Moscow’s two busiest airports providing our customers with choice and convenience. Our flights to Moscow cater to a lively market that is made up of both leisure and business travellers,” commented Adel Al Ali, group chief executive officer of Air Arabia.
“With the launch of our flights to Sheremetyevo, passengers can now benefit from additional travel options to connect to Russia from Sharjah and other destinations in our network,” he added.
Following a brief period that will last until the 1 March, 2018, Air Arabia will then upgrade the Sheremetyevo route into a daily flight schedule. Combined with the current daily flight to Domodedovo, travellers to the city of Moscow will be able to take advantage of the double daily frequency. Home to some of the world’s most fascinating architecture, Moscow is a popular destination for many global travellers.
To date, Air Arabia manages flights on 133 routes across the globe. These routes originate from five hubs based in the Middle East and North Africa region.
Beginning operations back in 2003, Air Arabia manages a fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft from five MENA-based hubs; the UAE, Morocco, Egypt and Jordan. Reportedly the region’s top low-cost carrier, the airline is listed on the Dubai Financial Market.
