Air Arabia has announced the expansion of its international route network with a new service to Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, following a joint cooperation between Air Arabia, Azerbaijan Airlines and local authorities.
Adel Al Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer of Air Arabia, said, “Baku offers an exciting proposition as a gateway to witness the confluence of history and modern urbanism. By adding this emerging destination to our growing network, Air Arabia will facilitate greater trade and tourism between the two countries.”
Starting 23rd March 2017, the airline will operate four weekly flights from its primary Sharjah International Airport hub.
Baku recently strengthened its presence on the global arena after playing host to the European Grand Prix. The city has also been named a host for the UEFA Euro 2020 tournament.
