Air Arabia takes off to Iran
Sharjah-based Air Arabia made its inaugural flight to Tehran, Iran yesterday with the airline’s Chairman Sheikh Abdullah Bin Moh'd Al-Thani, Air Arabia's CEO Adel Ali, press and other officials accompanying the flight.
Air Arabia's first flight to Tehran flew an official delegation to Tehran's Airport, where they were met by dignitaries and officials. Flights from Sharjah to Tehran will operate three days a week. A one way ticket from Sharjah to Tehran will start from 150 Emirati dirhams ($40.8), excluding government taxes, with similar fares available for the return trip.
Air Arabia was established as a fully fledged commercial airline of the UAE in 2003 with a fleet of two modern A320 aircraft, flying directly to Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Qatar, Sri Lanka and Syria. This year Air Arabia plans to expand its fleet to four Airbus A320 aircraft, flying to more destinations. — (menareport.com)
