Sharjah : Air Arabia has announced that it will begin service to Bangalore from Oct 15. Initially Air Arabia will operate four flights a week between Bangalore and Sharjah, but daily flights from Oct 29.
Flights to Bangalore will leave Sharjah at 10.50 p.m. (UAE time) and arrive in Bangalore at 04.20 a.m. (IST).
Return flights will leave Bangalore at 05.05 a.m. (IST) and arrive in Sharjah at 07.50 a.m. (UAE time), WAM news agency reported.
Kyle Haywood, commercial director of Air Arabia, said Monday: “Our rapidly expanding route destination network between India and the Middle East answers a growing need for passengers travelling between the two economically vibrant regions.
“We seek to give those who travel between these two regions low-cost fares along with the highest quality of service possible, whether they travel for business, holidays or to see family and friends.”
Bangalore is Air Arabia’s ninth destination in India, and increases Air Arabia’s total destinations to 37, a network that stretches from Eastern Europe, through the Middle East and North Africa, to South Asia.
Bangalore is one of India’s most dynamic cities, and has been India’s leading centre for information technology, earning the nickname of the silicon valley of India.
Haywood added: “We are quite pleased to add Bangalore to our low-cost flight network within India. With the large Indian expatriate population living in the Gulf countries, this new flight route represents even more low-cost convenience for those who have family, friends and homes in both these regions.”
