Dedicated to offering its customers exciting new options, Air Arabia has launched direct services between Sharjah and Kuala Lumpur.
The carrier is the first low-cost airline to connect Malaysia with the UAE and GCC.
The very first service was warmly welcomed by an official delegation. This was followed by a press conference held upon arrival at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
Group CEO, Air Arabia, Adel Al Ali remarked on the new route: “We are delighted to be the first low cost airline to connect Kuala Lumpur with the UAE and GCC. We are confident this new service linking the two cities will further strengthen the trade and tourism ties between both nations, while providing our customers with a great value-for-money option to travel between both countries and beyond. We thank Malaysia Airports and Tourism Malaysia for their warm welcome and continuous support.”
Also commenting on the news was Minister of Tourism, Arts & Culture Malaysia, YB Datuk Mohamadin Ketapi: “This year, our target is to have 337,100 tourists from West Asia region, and I believe that the establishment of Air Arabia’s Sharjah-Kuala Lumpur route will certainly help with increasing tourist arrivals from this region. The flight couldn’t have come at a better time as we are also aggressively promoting Malaysia in the run-up to our Visit Malaysia 2020 campaign.”
The seven-hour Sharjah-Kuala Lumpur flight operates Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
