Air Arabia launched its inaugural flight to Trabzon as its latest Turkish destination.
The airline currently operates flights to 130 routes across the globe from five hubs located in the Middle East and North Africa.
The new addition, offering seasonal but direct flights five days a week, will allow passengers to discover Turkey’s historic port city.
The flight operates five times weekly from Sunday to Wednesday and Fridays.
The flight that departs Sharjah International Airport at 21:45 arrives at Trabzon International Airport at 00:20 local time the next day. The return service departs Trabzon at 01:00, landing in Sharjah at 05:15 local time.
On Tuesdays, the flight departs Sharjah at 13:15 and arrives at Trabzon at 15:50; return flights depart Trabzon at 16:30 and land in Sharjah at 20:45.
Flights on Sundays depart from Sharjah at 16:35 and land in Trabzon at 19:10; return flights depart at 19:50 and arrive at Sharjah at 00:05 the next day.
Affordable holiday destinations
“The new route is a testament to Air Arabia’s commitment to providing affordable holiday destinations to passengers travelling from the UAE,” said Adel Al Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer of Air Arabia.
Al Ali mentioned that he believes that the new destination will “cement trade and bilateral ties between two nations.”
Trabzon, which rests on the bank of the Black Sea, is a historically significant city situated on the upper east side of the country away from crowded Istanbul and Ankara.
