Air Arabia expanded its Russian network in the last week, launching two further routes to the country from its Sharjah (SHJ) base in the UAE. The low-cost airline, which already serves Moscow Domodedovo and Yekaterinburg, launched flights to Ufa (UFA) west of the Ural Mountains on 2 October and Kazan (KZN) by Volga River on 3 October. Each of the two routes is operated twice-weekly with the airline’s A320 aircraft. Although Air Arabia faces no direct competition on either route, fellow LCC flydubai indirectly competes on both routes from nearby Dubai; thrice-weekly to Ufa and twice-weekly to Kazan. “We are pleased to introduce this new service to Ufa which comes as part of our route expansion strategy in the Russian Federation and Eastern Europe” said Adel Ali, Group CEO, Air Arabia. “We are confident that this new service will positively contribute to the strong trade and Tourism relations between the UAE and Russia as well as offer customers’ affordable and unique product.”
