Good news if you’re planning a summer escape to somewhere cooler – well, a little bit, anyway. Air Arabia will be flying from Sharjah to Athens in Greece, three times a week from April 21.
Roundtrip flights will operate between Athens Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport and Air Arabia's hub in Sharjah.
"We are extremely pleased to announce the launch of service to Athens," said AK Nizar, Air Arabia’s Head of Commercial Department.
He added: "An international tourist destination, Greece is also an important economic centre in the Mediterranean region. There is significant passenger traffic between the country and the Middle East, particularly for tourism and business. We are confident that Air Arabia's non-stop flight to Greece will further enhance its popularity among the Middle East-based tourists."
