Air Arabia Abu Dhabi expands operations to Bangladesh


Air Arabia Abu Dhabi, the capital’s first low-cost carrier, has announced the introduction of a new service to Bangladesh’s port city of Chattogram from October 11.

The twice-a-week direct flights from Abu Dhabi offers greater connectivity between the two countries, the airline said in a statement on Thursday.

Chattogram joins Air Arabia Abu Dhabi’s growing network in Bangladesh with current flights connecting Abu Dhabi with Dhaka.

The new service represents the seventh route for Air Arabia Abu Dhabi since the launch of the carrier’s service on July 14.

The carrier follows the business model of Air Arabia and complements the services of Etihad Airways thereby catering to the growing low-cost travel market segment in the region.
