Air Arabia, the largest low-cost carrier in the Middle East and North Africa, has announced the expansion of services to the Indian capital of New Delhi.
Starting from September 1, Air Arabia will offer twice-daily flights to the Indian city, the airline said in a statement.
Air Arabia said the 14 weekly flights will depart Sharjah International Airport daily at 07:45am and 23:20pm.
Return flights depart Delhi International Airport daily at 13:05pm and 04:40am (local time), Air Arabia added.
“The rapidly expanding Aviation sector in India is one of the country’s major economic drivers” said Adel Ali, group CEO, Air Arabia.
“We are confident that the expansion of service between Sharjah and India’s capital, New Delhi will further enhance the air travel options for the residents of both states and positively contributes to the economic development of both countries."
Ali added: “India has always been a market of focus for Air Arabia and we currently serve 13 cities across India from Sharjah; this number reflects the ever growing appeal for Air Arabia flights between the two countries and we are looking forward to offer more customers our value for money air travel."
Air Arabia started operations to the City of Delhi in March 2008. Since then, the airline said it has seen increasing demand for seats.
