Sharjah-based Air Arabia has been named ‘Best Low-Cost Airline’ in the Middle East and Africa by the Airline Excellence Awards.

Judged by seven editors with over 200 years of industry experience and evaluated against 12 criteria, including fleet age, passenger reviews, profitability, investment rating, product offerings and staff relations, the honour further underlines the carrier’s credentials as the first-choice low-cost airline in the region.

On the recognition, group CEO, Air Arabia, Adel Ali said: “Being voted as the ‘Best Low-Cost Airline’ in the Middle East and Africa is another testament to our focus on delivering excellent value for our customers backed by superior service standards. This achievement is owed to the commitment and dedication of the Air Arabia team, who are unwavering in delivering added value to our passengers.”


Currently, Air Arabia operates flights to over 170 global destinations in 50 countries from four hubs in the UAE, Morocco and Egypt. To ramp up its fleet, the airline recently placed one of the region’s largest single-aisle aircraft orders of 120 Airbus A320 Family aircraft that will bolster its global expansion strategy.
