Air Arabia today announced the addition of Doha to the list of destinations it serves directly from its recently opened Ras Al Khaimah hub. Starting February 22, 2015, the low-cost carrier will fly four times per week to Qatar, bringing the total number of destinations operated from the Ras Al Khaimah International Airport to nine.
Adel A. Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer of Air Arabia, said: “When we launched our Ras Al Khaimah hub in 2014, we made a firm commitment to increase connectivity to and from the Northern Emirates. Ras Al Kaimah is one of the region’s most attractive destinations and we are confident that our newly launched flights will provide customers with great connectivity between both cities, both for leisure and for business. We look forward to launching new routes to customers over the course of 2015 as Air Arabia continues on its growth trajectory.”
Flights to Doha will leave Ras Al Khaimah International Airport on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at 09.45, arriving at Hamad International Airport at 09.50. Return flights will leave Doha at 10.50 and reach Ras Al Khaimah at 13.00. Air Arabia also operates triple daily flights to Doha from its main base in Sharjah.
Air Arabia’s inaugural 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 Cairo in Egypt; Muscat in Oman; Islamabad, Lahore and Peshawar in Pakistan; and Dhaka and Chittagong in Bangladesh.
