The addition of the new destinations comes less than two months after the low-cost carrier began operations to RAK Airport.

By way of a partnership between SpiceJet and RAK Airport, free road transportation (passenger pick-up and drop-off) is provided to passengers in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah.

Ras Al Khaimah aims to attract 2.9 million visitors per year by 2025 and tourism is one of its central elements in its economic diversification strategy.

“SpiceJet has been a vital partner for us since we signed an MoU with them in 2019 and they are playing a major role in our expansion plans, which are to deliver more services to a greater number of destinations across the Indian sub-continent as well as to the rest of the world. This new tranche of services from SpiceJet will further enhance our role as a vital transport hub for the UAE,” said Sanjay Khanna, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah International Airport.

“We are working hard to attract more airlines to our facility and expect our operations to grow significantly this year for the anticipated post-Covid-19 economic bounce and Expo 2020 in October,” added Khanna.

Ajay Singh, CMD SpiceJet, meanwhile said, “SpiceJet has flown with the highest occupancy of over 90% in India for a record five years now, which is a testament to our continued popularity. The addition of our new flights to Ras Al Khaimah will both meet existing requirements for flights to and from the UAE and India as well as help fuel new demand.”

The airline said that it is mulling adding new routes from Ras Al Khaimah over the coming months.

RAK airport resumed scheduled passenger flights in October last year. Apart from SpiceJet, UAE low-cost carrier Air Arabia too introduced an all-new service from Ras Al Khaimah to the Bangladesh capital city of Dhaka, besides resuming its previous services to several cities in Egypt, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
