Air Arabia will fly to the UAE from Ufa, Kazan and Yekaterinburg.
From December 4, Air Arabia launches flights from Ufa, Kazan and Yekaterinburg to Sharjah. Three major Russian tour operators have taken blocks of seats on these flights. The travel industry believes that the expansion of the flight program will have a beneficial effect on pricing.
Now the airline flies from Moscow.
The flight program from Ufa will start on December 6 with a frequency of two flights a week. Departures are scheduled on Tuesdays and Fridays.
The flight program from Kazan will begin on December 4 with a frequency of two flights a week. Departures are scheduled on Saturdays and Thursdays.
The flight program from Yekaterinburg will start on December 5. Departures are announced with a frequency of three flights a week on Saturdays, Mondays and Wednesdays.
The opening of new flights became possible thanks to the cooperation of the air carrier and Russian tour operators. The presence of block contracts allowed the airline to minimize the risks of entering the Russian regions.
Competition with another Arab carrier - flydubai - will have a positive impact on the cost of tours to the UAE.
