Air Arabia to add Baku
Low-cost carrier Air Arabia will begin flying to the Azerbajaini capital Baku four times a week from Sharjah International as of March 23 next year.
The airline says the launch of the new flights follows joint cooperation between Air Arabia, Azerbajian Airlines and local authorities aimed at promoting the new route.
Flights to Heydar Aliyev International will depart Sharjah every Saturday, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday.
Azerbaijan recently lifted advance visa requirements for GCC citizens to encourage visitation to Baku which now hosts a leg of the European Grand Prix and has been named a host for the UEFA Euro 2020 tournament.
