“2023 has been a remarkable year for the airline. Air Arabia has successfully maintained its growth momentum from the previous record-breaking year and achieved exceptional financial and operational results. The significant milestones attained in terms of growth, revenue, and profitability serve as a testament to Air Arabia’s robust business model, competent management team, and effective growth strategy.


“Despite the numerous geopolitical and economic challenges faced by the global aviation industry, the Air Arabia group managed to sustain its strong growth in 2023. This was achieved through the increase of operating capacity and the addition of new routes across our global network from all our hubs. We take pride in the fact that Air Arabia’s value-driven product and services now cater to a broader customer base and reach more markets.


“Despite the softening in yield margins during the last quarter of the year and the ongoing challenges in the industry's supply chain, Air Arabia demonstrated resilience by registering a solid profitability while maintaining an impressive seat load factor and growth in revenue and passenger numbers. This outstanding performance serves as a testament to Air Arabia's effective operational and commercial strategy, as well as its unwavering commitment to consistently delivering genuine value to its customers.


“The global aviation industry continues to face challenges arising from escalating geopolitical tensions, as well as prolonged supply chain disruptions due to shortages in skilled manpower, aircraft, spare parts availability, and other factors that have led to increased operating costs for the sector. Despite navigating these challenges, we remain optimistic about the future of low-cost air travel. We have full confidence in Air Arabia's unique business model, operational excellence, and value-driven product, which continue to attract and serve our growing customer base.
