Air Arabia strengthens service to GCC markets with additional daily Kuwait flight
28 February 2012
Air Arabia today announced the expansion of Kuwait services from its Sharjah hub to three daily flights, further strengthening the airline’s services to the country. With the launch of the additional service, Air Arabia will now operate three daily flights to the city of Kuwait.
Effective 25 March 2012, the carrier will offer three daily services to Kuwait, departing Sharjah International Airport at 08:40, 17:10 and 21:00 and arriving at Kuwait International Airport at 09:10, 17:40 and 21:30 respectively. Return flights will depart from Kuwait at 09:50, 18:20 and 22:10 and arrive in Sharjah at 12:30, 21:00 and 00:50 respectively.
Since launching operations in 2003, Air Arabia has been committed to using its infrastructure to improve intra-GCC connectivity with daily or double-daily flights to most major destinations in the Gulf.
“Kuwait was amongst the first destinations we started serving when Air Arabia took off the skies. Today, we are proud to see services increased to three daily frequencies, thus connecting our customers in UAE and Kuwait with a great frequency and un-beatable fares” said Adel Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer, Air Arabia. “As economic and social ties between the GCC countries grow ever closer, Air Arabia will continue to offer enormous choice for customers seeking to travel within the six countries, where air travel is a preferred mode of transport.”
In eight years of operations, Air Arabia’s network has expanded to serve over 70 destinations from hubs in the UAE, Morocco and Egypt, winning countless accolades along the way. The airline’s traffic climbed 6 per cent to 4.7 million passengers last year alone, and it currently operates a global fleet of 30 new Airbus A320 aircraft. In the same year, Air Arabia also reported that its on-time performance for out-bound flights from its Sharjah hub recorded 93 per cent.
