Air Arabia, the low-cost carrier, has launched its first flights from Sharjah to Vienna.
The non-stop six-hour flight to the Austrian city will operate four times a week on Sundays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and will be expanded to daily flight service as of mid-December, the airline said.
Adel Al Ali, group CEO of Air Arabia, said: "This new service will provide our customers in the UAE and Austria with a great opportunity to discover the beauty of both countries while enjoying Air Arabia value-for-money offers. We thank Vienna International Airport for their support and we look forward to a long-term partnership."
Julian Jager, joint CEO and COO of Vienna Airport, added: "In recent years, we have seen a significant rise in number of tourists from the UAE and Vienna is a popular destination amongst Arab travellers.
"We have registered close to 13 percent growth on flights to the Middle East since the beginning of the year. We look forward to welcoming even more visitors from the Middle East to this beautiful city."
Air Arabia has been offering direct flights to Vienna from its hub in Morocco since October 2018. It currently operates flights to more than 170 routes across the globe from four hubs located in the Middle East and North Africa.
