The return flight will depart Asmara on Mondays at 01:40, landing in Sharjah the next day at 06:20 hours local time.

 

 

Adel Al Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer of Air Arabia said “Eritrea is on the path to becoming an important market for the UAE. Through the launch of this route, we look to boost the trade and bilateral relations between the two countries, and expand our footprint in the African continent. We are excited to commence our operations to Asmara, which will provide affordable travel options to passengers travelling from Eritrea to destinations across our network and beyond.”

 

 

Air Arabia currently operates flights to 133 routes across the globe from five hubs located in the Middle East and North Africa.
