Air Arabia flies Kuala Lumpur to Sharjah non-stop
Air Arabia has launched direct flights between Kuala Lumpur and Sharjah, making it the first direct route connecting Malaysia with the United Arab Emirates by a low-cost carrier.
The seven-hour flight between the two cities will operate daily.
Adel Al Ali, group chief executive officer of Air Arabia, said: “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.”
YB Datuk Mohamadin Ketapi, Minister of tourism, arts and culture for Malaysia, said: “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.”
Encapsulating all that Asia has to offer in one city, Kuala Lumpur is a modern metropolis dominated by the tallest skyscrapers in south-east Asia including the iconic Petronas Twin Towers, and is home to an inspiring blend of cultures, countless eateries, and spectacular sites and monuments.
