Air Arabia has launched regular non-stop services to Shymkent, Kazakhstan.
With the addition of Shymkent, Air Arabia has become the only operator in the UAE to serve three destinations in Kazakhstan. The new twice-weekly service will be Air Arabia’s 91st worldwide destination.
“Kazakhstan is a rapidly emerging economy with a very bright future, and we have accordingly prioritised building our route network in the country,” explained Adel Ali, group chief executive officer, Air Arabia. “As two major oil producers, there are obvious links between the UAE and Kazakhstan, and we also see real potential for broader trade and tourism ties, which makes us confident of the success of this new service to Shymkent.”
Flights depart Sharjah on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 23:00, arriving in Shymkent at 03:30 on the following day. The return flights will depart Shymkent on Thursdays and Sundays at 04:30 arriving in Sharjah at 06:15.
