Air Arabia expands its route network with a new service to Baku

Published on : Tuesday, October 25, 2016

Air ArabiaAir Arabia, the Middle East and North Africa’s first and largest low-cost carrier (LCC), has expanded its international route network with a new service to Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan.

 

 

Starting 23 March 2017, the airline will operate four weekly flights from its primary Sharjah International Airport hub. The launch of the new flights follows a joint cooperation between Air Arabia, Azerbaijan Airlines and local authorities aimed at promoting the new route connecting Baku and Sharjah.

 

 

On Thursdays and Sundays, the flight will depart Sharjah at 07:55 and arrive at the Heydar Aliyev International Airport in Baku at 10:50 local time, with the return flight scheduled from Baku at 11:30 destined to reach Sharjah at 14:10 local time. On Tuesdays and Saturdays, the flight will depart from Sharjah at 14:55 to land in Baku at 17:50 local time, and make its return journey starting 18:50 at Baku and land at Sharjah International Airport at 21:30 local time.

 

 

Sitting on the crossroads of Europe and Asia, Azerbaijan’s largest city also serves as the country’s financial nerve centre. Baku invites business and leisure travellers to its unique urban setting where ancient stone mansions co-exist with newly developed skyscrapers and mosques that stand as architectural marvels.

 

 

Adel Al Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer, Air Arabia, said, “Baku offers an exciting proposition as a gateway to witness the confluence of history and modern urbanism. By adding this emerging destination to our growing network, Air Arabia will facilitate greater trade and tourism between the two countries. We thank the local authorities in Azerbaijan for all their efforts and cooperation leading to the launch of the new service connecting Sharjah and Baku”.

 

 

This move also gives regional travellers another getaway that is a short flight away; and the recent lifting of advance visa requirements is an impetus for GCC citizens to include Baku into their travel list.

 

 

Baku recently strengthened its presence on the global arena after playing host to the European Grand Prix. The city has also been named a host for the UEFA Euro 2020 tournament.
