Sharjah-based low cost carrier Air Arabia has announced a new route to Grozny in Russia’s Chechnya.
The airline will begin flying to Grozny three times a week from April 2018 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Flights will leave Sharjah International Airport at 1:00pm and arrive at Grozny International at 4:10pm.
The return journey will leave Grozny at 5:15pm and land in Sharjah at 7:50pm.
“Expanding our Russia network, to include the new state capital of Grozny, forms an important part of Air Arabia’s ongoing commitment to our passengers to access affordable and unique holiday destinations,” said Air Arabia group CEO Adel Ali.
“This new flight option will offer passengers the opportunity to explore Grozny and experience the rich history and culture of this exciting city, at great value. The new route adds to our existing network in Russia, which already includes Moscow.”
Air Arabia also began flights to Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport this month, complementing its existing route to the Russian capital’s Domodedovo International.
The airline currently operates 140 routes from five hubs in the Middle East and North Africa at Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Morocco, Egypt and Jordan.
