Air Arabia has been named ‘Best Low-Cost Carrier’ at the World Tourism Forum (WTF) Awards in Istanbul based on its performance over the last year.
The airline has opened two international hubs in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE; and Amman, Jordan; and increased its global network to 104 destinations. Another milestone reached by the carrier during the last twelve months was when it became the first airline in the MENA region to enter the Chinese market with flights to Urumqi, the largest city in Western China.
This is the latest in a series of recent accolades won by Air Arabia, whose Group CEO Adel Ali commented, “It is a source of great pride for everyone at Air Arabia that our contribution to the aviation sector continues to be recognised, not only within the Middle East and North Africa, but also by our peers around the world. We thank the organisers of the World Tourism Forum for this accolade and we would like to express our gratitude to the millions of loyal customers who have enabled our success for more than a decade.”
