Air Arabia gets new Airbus A320 aircraft
Air Arabia LLC, UAE’s national airline and first low-cost airline of its kind in the Middle East & North Africa region, received its new Airbus A320 aircraft Sunday – bringing the fleet to four aircraft. The new A320 aircraft enables the low-cost airline to service customers throughout the Middle East, North Africa and Indian Subcontinent with its current destination list of ten countries and fourteen destinations.
Arriving to Sharjah International Airport from Toulouse, France under the command of Air Arabia’s Director of Operations - Captain Mohammed Ahmed and Security Officer - Captain Nabeel Sharif, the aircraft is due to start operations later this week.
Speaking on the occasion, Air Arabia’s CEO Adel Ali said: “We are constantly striving to cater to passenger needs and offer them additional value. With the introduction of another aircraft we are able to cater to more destinations as well as increased frequency to current destinations.” Also accompanying the flight from Toulouse was Jassim Al Marzooqi, Air Arabia’s Chief Engineer as well as Ismail Al Balooshi, GCAA Airworthiness Inspector.
The A320 aircraft is recognised as an economical aircraft whilst combining the widest and most spacious cabins in its class that allow low-cost airlines to not only compete on cost, but on the actual product. Air Arabia’s new aircraft will offer the latest in customer comfort with the largest seat pitch in the market – that of 34 inches – in comparison to 29 and at the most 31 inches offered on most regional airlines.
