Air Arabia, the Middle East and North Africa’s first and largest low-cost carrier, today announced that starting from July 9th, 2017, Sohar will become the third destination to join its Oman network.
The new route complements Air Arabia’s existing operations in Oman to Muscat and Salalah, boosts travel and trade opportunities between the two Gulf countries, and provides hassle-free travel options to the residents of Sohar.
The flight will operate three times a week, on Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays, departing from Sharjah International Airport at 08:00, and arriving at Sohar International Airport at 08:40 local time. The return flight will depart from Sohar at 09:20, landing in Sharjah at 10:00 local time.
"Announcing a third destination to Oman is a testament to our strong commitment to facilitate passenger travel between Oman and the UAE," said Adel Al Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer of Air Arabia. "We are proud to be one of the first international carriers to operate from Sohar International Airport, and look forward to extending our offerings to passengers flying with us between both cities and across our expansive route network."
