Air Arabia launches new routes to Russia and Kazakhstan
Air Arabia continued expanding its network to CIS countries from its Sharjah (SHJ) base in the United Arab Emirates, launching three new routes; two to Russia and one to Kazakhstan. On 31 October, the low-cost airline began serving Kazakhstan’s capital Astana (TSE), followed by flights to Rostov-on-Don (ROV) in southern Russia on 2 November. On 3 November, flights followed to Kazan (KZN) by the river Volga. Each of the three routes is operated twice a week with the airline’s A320 aircraft. Although none of the routes face direct competition, flydubai indirectly competes at nearby Dubai International Airport on the Kazan route with four weekly operations.
