Air Arabia Adds Direct Flights to Bangkok to its Network

Air Arabia Adds Direct Flights to Bangkok to its Network




Air Arabia is an airline that connects the Arabic Gulf countries to the Far East at a low cost and is the Middle East and North Africa's largest low-cost airline, equivalent to Ryanair in Europe. The airline has just announced plans to make flights from Sharjah, UAE to Bangkok daily and in addition, these will be non-stop flights.

The Trusty A321


The journey, which normally takes some six hours and 15 minutes, will be operated by Airbus A321 aircraft which are capable of flying up to approximately seven hours directly. The flights will be operated twice daily as a roundtrip. 


The outbound flight from Sharjah is scheduled at 22:25 and is due to land in Bangkok at approximately 07:50, the return flight to Sharjah departs at 09:00 with an approximate 12:25 landing time.




Executive Insights


Enabling passengers to travel between the two points is at the heart of the low-cost carrier's ethos. 

Adel Al Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer, Air Arabia, said: “We are delighted to announce the launch of our latest route to Bangkok, the vibrant capital city of Thailand. This exciting addition to our route network from Sharjah International Airport reaffirms our unwavering commitment to continuously provide our customers with new options of affordable air travel.”

He added: “We look forward to the start of operations and we are confident that this new route will further contribute to the trade and tourism ties between both countries while providing our customer base with the opportunity to travel direct between both cities.”

Connecting Countries More Directly, at a Lower Cost


Now that customers can book direct, it makes it so much easier to travel. The airline hasn't commented on specific pricing but passengers are able to book now for the flights which are starting on June 30 with the Sharjah to Bangkok flight being the first to depart on that day.




It has become evident that, particularly in Asia and America, there are several new airlines that are taking from the Ryanair model. This is welcome news as, traditionally, flights of this nature were extremely expensive and many passengers have had to put up with connecting flights, adding precious time. Hopefully, with time, unnecessary connections and transits will soon become a thing of the past.
