UAE-based domestic airline Jet Rotana has announced that it will begin services from Abu Dhabi’s Al Bateen airport to Dubai’s Terminal 2 from August 1.
Two-way tickets will be priced at Dhs150, official news agency WAM reported.

The carrier will also operate flights between Sir Bani Yas Island and Dubai, with round trip fares set at Dhs200.
“Demand for connecting cities within the UAE has steadily grown, and customers have been requesting a direct connectivity between Abu Dhabi and Dubai and between Dubai and Sir Bani Yas Island for some time now,” said Rajendran Vellapalath, Rotana Jet’s Commercial and Planning director.
“We are glad to be the first to facilitate this connectivity, which we believe will create a wide range of new options for the UAE’s tourism and business sectors.”
