Air Arabia Abu Dhabi, the capital’s first low-cost carrier, has announced the introduction of a new service to the Egyptian capital Cairo with direct flights from Abu Dhabi starting on Sept.24, 2020.

“The daily service offers greater connectivity and value-for-money options making it easier and more convenient for customers to travel between the two capital cities,” the airline said in a statement.

Cairo joins Air Arabia Abu Dhabi growing network in Egypt with current flights connecting Abu Dhabi with Alexandria and Sohag. The new service represents the fifth route for Air Arabia Abu Dhabi since the launch of service from Abu Dhabi International Airport on July 14th, 2020.

Air Arabia Abu Dhabi was formed following an agreement by Etihad Airways and Air Arabia to establish the capital’s first low-cost carrier that follows the business model of Air Arabia and complements the services of Etihad Airways from Abu Dhabi thereby catering to the growing low-cost travel market segment in the region.

Air Arabia Abu Dhabi today marked the inauguration of its operations on July 15, with its first flight to Alexandria in Egypt. A second Air Arabia Abu Dhabi flight operated from the UAE’s capital to the Nile city of Sohag.

Air Arabia Abu Dhabi has started its operations with two Airbus A320 aircraft based at Abu Dhabi International Airport, offering the same value-for-money product and services provided by Sharjah-based Air Arabia.
