Air Arabia Abu Dhabi Launches New Service to Kabul and Dhaka From August 7, 2020
Air Arabia Abu Dhabi Announced on Monday the launch of new service from Abu Dhabi to Kabul, Afghanistan and Dhaka in Bangladesh starting August 7, 2020. The new low-cost carrier started flights last month with service to Alexandria and Sohag in Egypt.
Today (August 3, 2020) Abu Dhabi-based low-cost carrier Air Arabia announced the launch of service to Kabul, Afghanistan as well as Dhaka in Bangladesh from Friday August 7, 2020. The new routes join the carrier’s inaugural routes to Alexandria and Sohag in Egypt which commenced in July. Service to Kabul will be available three-times weekly on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, while Dhaka flights will be offered twice weekly on Wednesdays and Fridays. The new routes will be serviced by an Airbus A320 aircraft. Customers can now book flights on Air Arabia’s website, via the company’s call center or through a travel agent.
Air Arabia Abu Dhabi was founded following an agreement between Air Arabia and Etihad Airways and was established as an independent joint-venture company. The new carrier will operate as a low-cost carrier (LCC) with its hub at Abu Dhabi International Airport and will follow Air Arabia’s successful business model. The airline will complement Etihad Airways’ Abu Dhabi services and thereby cater to the growing LCC market segment in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. Air Arabia was the first MENA region LCC when the carrier began operations in the UAE in 2003.
