Sharjah-based low cost carrier Air Arabia has announced plans to begin flights to Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport from next year.
The airline said it would begin flying the new route from February 1 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
It will then be upgraded to a daily service on March 1, complementing the carrier’s existing daily flight to Moscow’s Domodedovo International.
“We are pleased to serve Moscow’s two busiest airports providing our customers with choice and convenience,” said Air Arabia group CEO Adel Al Ali.
“Our flights to Moscow cater to a lively market that is made up of both leisure and business travelers. With the launch of our flights to Sheremetyevo, passengers can now benefit from additional travel options to connect to Russia from Sharjah and other destinations in our network.”
The Sharjah-Sheremetyevo flight will depart at 9:10am and arrive at 1:35pm. The return leg will leave at 2:45pm and landing in Sharjah at 8:45pm.
Air Arabia currently operates 133 routes from five hubs in the Middle East and North Africa at Sharjah, Ras Al Khaimah, Morocco, Egypt and Jordan.
