Air Arabia, the Middle East and North Africa’s leading carrier, has strengthened connectivity with Egypt with the launch of non-stop services to Cairo, the capital city.
The new service from the carrier’s primary hub in Sharjah marks Air Arabia’s fifth destination in Egypt and 90th worldwide. From 27 February, 2014, Air Arabia will offer three weekly flights to Cairo, making it a convenient destination for passengers from and to the UAE, travelling for business or pleasure.
Flights will depart Sharjah International Airport on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, at 13:00 arriving in Cairo International Airport at 15:20. Return flights will depart Cairo at 16:00 arriving in Sharjah at 21:20 local time.
Adel Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer, Air Arabia, said: “Egypt is a key market for Air Arabia, and by strengthening our connectivity with the country, we are further contributing to the growing bilateral ties between the UAE and Egypt. With tourism and trade in Egypt gathering momentum and led by the strong population of Egyptians who work and live in the UAE, our new service to Cairo will only add value to both nations.”
“Air Arabia will serve as a preferred carrier for individuals, families and tourists seeking to travel to Egypt and the wider North Africa. The capital city is one of the world’s most historically and culturally rich destination, and we are confident that our new service to Cairo will offer our customers an ideal opportunity to travel between both countries.”
Air Arabia currently connects passengers from Sharjah to Alexandria, Assuit, Luxor and Sohag in Egypt. There has been a significant level of demand for Air Arabia’s Egypt services over the past years, with its wide range of value for money offerings making it an airline of choice.
