Air Arabia First International Low-Cost to India


NEW DELHI- UAEs low-cost carrier Air Arabia has become the first international low cost airline to start daily flight services to India from March 26.

Air Arabia now operates daily flights from Sharjah International Airport to Chatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai.

The cost of a ticket from Sharjah to Mumbai starts from US$67 - excluding taxes and surcharges. Air Arabia’s fare structure is based on supply and demand and fares increase as more seats are booked on a particular flight.

CEO Air Arabia Adel Ali, said: “By connecting India to our existing routes, we can now offer Indian nationals in the region the opportunity to travel more often at lower fares to India for business or leisure.”

With the addition of its fifth A320 earlier this year, Air Arabia will offer travellers to and from India brand new aircraft with the largest seat pitch in the market –34 inches – in comparison to 29 and 31 inches offered on most regional airlines.

Air Arabia also offers an in-flight entertainment system with both video and audio choices to passengers on short and long haul routes.
