Doha: Air Arabia, the Middle East and North Africa’s first and largest low-cost carrier, announced the start of its non-stop services to the city of Antalya, on the Mediterranean coast, in the South West of Turkey.
The new service from the carrier’s primary hub in Sharjah marks Air Arabia’s second destination in Turkey and 97th worldwide. Starting July 29, 2014, Air Arabia offers three weekly flights to Antalya, making it a convenient holiday destination for passengers travelling from the UAE.
Flights depart Sharjah International Airport on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 21:30 arriving at Antalya International Airport at 00:45. Return flights depart Antalya at 01:25 arriving in Sharjah at 06:25. The launch of Antalya complements Air Arabia’s seven weekly flights to the historic city of Istanbul, a route launched in 2006. In June 2009, the airline expanded Turkish operations to connect Istanbul to its Casablanca hub in Morocco.
