Low cost carrier Air Arabia said on Monday it has expanded its services to Moscow from its hub in Sharjah.

The budget airline said it now offers five flights per week, an addition of two flights to the schedule first launched last October.

The carrier now offers direct flights to Moscow on Tuesdays, Wednesday, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.

"We are extremely pleased to announce the expansion of service between Sharjah and Moscow, which will further enhance travel options for the residents of both cities," said AK Nizar, head of commercial department, Air Arabia.

"Since the introduction of services to Moscow in October, Air Arabia has seen great demand on this route.

"We are confident that the increase in frequency of services to the Russian capital will further enhance travel and tourism ties between the two nations."

Moscow, with a population in excess of 10.5 million, is the most populous city in Russia, and is the country's economic and political centre.
