Air Arabia boosts Mumbai flights

The holiday season is fast approaching and Air Arabia has witnessed a surge in passenger traffic to the Indian sub-continent. Passengers have enjoyed the airline’s regular frequency of flights, which takes off from Sharjah to Mumbai on a daily basis.

However, from the 1st of December 2006 to the 31st of January 2007, Air Arabia has added an additional daily flight, on the Sharjah-Mumbai-Sharjah route, to accommodate the increase in passenger demand.

The two daily flights take off at 1:30 am and 6:30 am from the Sharjah International Airport and land in the Mumbai International Airport at 5:45 am and 8:05 am respectively.

SHK Abdullah Al Thani, Chairman of Air Arabia, said, ‘The end of the year is a time where passengers are eager to visit family members and share in the season’s joy. Air Arabia has scheduled extra flights, increasing frequency to 14 flights to Mumbai every week in order to ensure all our customers get a chance to fly to meet their loved ones at home for the festive season.’

Starting with a single flight to Bahrain in October 2003, Air Arabia today flies to over 30 destinations across 20 countries, including recent additions like Chennai and Thiruvanthapuram in India, Latakia in Syria and Katmandu in Nepal carrying over two million passengers.
