Air Arabia announced that Asmara will become its first destination in Eritrea, starting from December 10, 2017.
Situated in the Horn of Africa, Eritrea is home to some delightful modernist architecture, and a unique art deco scene for visitors to behold.
The flight will operate once a week on Sundays, departing Sharjah International Airport at 22:00 hours, and will arrive at Asmara International Airport at 01:00 hours local time. The return flight will depart Asmara on Mondays at 01:40, landing in Sharjah the next day at 06:20 hours local time.
Adel Al Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer of Air Arabia said:
“Eritrea is on the path to becoming an important market for the UAE. Through the launch of this route, we look to boost the trade and bilateral relations between the two countries and expand our footprint in the African continent. We are excited to commence our operations to Asmara, which will provide affordable travel options to passengers traveling from Eritrea to destinations across our network and beyond.”
Air Arabia currently operates flights to 133 routes across the globe from five hubs located in the Middle East and North Africa.
