Air Arabia, the Middle East’s largest low-cost carrier, has announced that it will begin flights to Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow from February 2018.

The airline said in a statement that it will be the second airport Air Arabia serves in Moscow, boosting services to the Russian capital to a double daily frequency.

The flight to Sheremetyevo International Airport complements the airline’s existing daily services to Moscow’s Domodedovo International Airport.

The flight will operate four times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, departing Sharjah International Airport.

Air Arabia said it will upgrade to a daily Sheremetyevo flight from March 1.

Adel Al Ali, group CEO of Air Arabia, said: “We are pleased to serve Moscow’s two busiest airports providing our customers with choice and convenience. Our flights to Moscow cater to a lively market that is made up of both leisure and business travelers.”

Air Arabia currently operates flights to 133 routes across the globe from five hubs located in the Middle East and North Africa.
