Air Arabia said it will be launching additional services to Dammam in Saudi Arabia. The launch of the additional service will commence from Wednesday which will bring the Sharjah-based budget carrier’s flights to the eastern Saudi port city to three daily.
“The kingdom remains an important market for Air Arabia and we are proud to see Dammam services increased to three daily frequencies,” Adel Ali, Group CEO, Air Arabia, said.
“Driven by commercial needs, Air Arabia will continue to further expand its network in the kingdom and the region providing customers with a wider choice for value air travel,” he added.
Air Arabia is currently operating 51 weekly flights covering six destinations in the Gulf kingdom.
Air Arabia currently operates a total fleet of 30 Airbus A320 aircraft, plying 70 routes from three hubs in the UAE, Morocco and Egypt.
Air Arabia reported a 7% rise in Q4 net profit last month, as it expands across the region despite a challenging environment with ongoing regional unrest.
Air Arabia recorded a net profit of AED78.7m ($21.4m) compared with AED72.27m a year earlier, the company said in a statement. The budget airline delayed its plans earlier this year to establish a fourth hub in Jordan.
