From 2 September, AirArabia will begin operating a thrice-weekly service from its new hub in Ras Al Khaimah to Chittagong in Bangladesh.
The Chittagong service will be the airline’s second route to Bangladesh after Dhaka – the nation’s capital city – to which AirArabia flies from Ras Al Khaimah 14 times each week. Chittagong is Bangladesh’s second largest city (with a population of 6.5 million) and is located on the coastline.
“Air Arabia is delighted to announce the introduction of our new service between Ras Al Khaimah and Chittagong. We have a strong association with Bangladesh, having run flights to the country since 2007,” commented Group CEO for AirArabia, Adel Ali.
Ras Al Khaimah became AirArabia’s second hub in the UAE in May of this year, following a long term strategic partnership with the Ras Al Khaimah Department of Civil Aviation. Adel Ali concluded, “The ever growing appeal of our flights, underpinned by our core value of making flying affordable for everyone, is why Air Arabia is considered the airline of choice for thousands of passengers who travel between Bangladesh and the UAE every month.”
