From 17 June, Quetta will become Air Arabia’s seventh destination in Pakistan, with thrice-weekly flights from Sharjah taking place on Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays.The service will depart Sharjah at 06:15, arriving at Quetta International Airport at 09:20. Return flights will leave on the same days from Quetta at 10:00 before landing back in the UAE at 11:15 (all times local).Adel Ali, CEO of Air Arabia, commented, “The addition of Quetta to our network means Air Arabia is able to offer customers across the entire breadth of Pakistan access to value-for-money air travel. We now have seven of Pakistan’s biggest cities covered with direct services from two airports in the UAE and we hope to add more in the future as part of our ongoing commitment to serve the country.”Located near the border with Afghanistan, Quetta is the largest city of the Balochistan province and is known as the fruit garden of Pakistan due to its large agriculture industry. It joins Karachi, Peshawar, Sialkot, Lahor, Islamabad and Multan as Pakistani cities served by direct Air Arabia flights from Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah International Airports.
