Air Arabia Abu Dhabi: A New Low-Cost Airline to Launch in Early 2020!
Air Arabia Abu Dhabi, the UAE’s latest airline will start operating in the first half of 2020 from the capital, and it’s expected to be very budget-friendly! Air Arabia Abu Dhabi is the product of a collaboration between Etihad Aviation Group and Sharjah-based low-cost carrier Air Arabia.
The two leading aircraft carriers announced the launch of the new airline last October; increasing the competition in the aviation sector as well as giving UAE residents and visitors another economical option.
The new carrier will be the fifth to operate from the UAE and the third budget-friendly one after Fly Dubai and Air Arabia. It will target the low-cost travel market segment, complementing the flagship carrier of Abu Dhabi, Etihad!
Tony Douglas, the CEO of Etihad Aviation Group, stated,”Connectivity from Abu Dhabi using Air Arabia Abu Dhabi is going to be great for customers. We have a whole schedule of announcements coming in. In Q1 or Q2, if you want to be on that aircraft, that opportunity will be there”.
There were no details or announcements on when the first flight will be scheduled or the destinations it will fly to, but more information will be out in the next few weeks.
