UAE-based low cost carrier Air Arabia on Tuesday announced plans to launch a third route to Pakistan in the early 2013.

The airline, based from its hub in Sharjah, will launch flights to Sialkot, becoming the first UAE carrier to operate scheduled flights to the city.

The new route, which starts on January 10, is Air Arabia’s third destination in Pakistan and 82nd worldwide.

Air Arabia, which will offer daily services to Sialkot, already operates flights to Karachi and Peshawar.

The launch of Sialkot follows the recent announcement of Air Arabia increasing flights to Karachi and Peshawar to daily.

With the launch of Sialkot, the carrier now offers 21 weekly non-stop services covering three destinations in Pakistan.

“The launch of our regular Sialkot service is a continuation of Air Arabia’s promise to offer value for money fares to multiple destinations in Pakistan,” said Adel Ali, Group CEO, Air Arabia.

“Since launching operations to Pakistan five years ago, we have been committed to offering our customers a unique option for affordable air travel and a great connectivity between both nations.

"The new service to Sialkot further contributes to the travel needs between Pakistan and the UAE. That being said, we look forward to developing our services to reach more destinations in Pakistan.”

Sialkot is a city and capital of Sialkot District located in the north-east of the Punjab province in Pakistan at the foot of Kashmir hills near the Chenab River.
