Air Arabia has unveiled the addition of a fifth destination with its Turkey network. Beginning from the 27 June 2018, the airline will become the first in the UAE to offer a direct flight to the Turkish city of Izmir.
The airline is expected to offer flights twice a week on Wednesday and Saturday. Departing Sharjah International Airport (SHJ) at 21:05, the flight is scheduled to arrive the next day at Izmir’s Adnan Menderes International Airport (ADB) at 00:50 local time. The return flight is expected to depart Izmir at 01:30, landing in Sharjah at 06:50 local time.
As the fifth addition to Air Arabia’s Turkey network, Izmir joins other destinations to Turkey, such as Istanbul, Antalya, Bodrum and Trabzon.
Adel Al Ali, group chief executive officer of Air Arabia said “Turkey is a country with a true epitome of a cultural crossroad, and holds history that is as tangible and accessible as any of its modern-day attractions. We are immensely pleased to announce Izmir as our fifth destination in Turkey.
“Air Arabia’s goal will always be to allow passengers the ability to explore new destinations through affordable travel options. This new flight to Izmir is an exciting destination for residents in the UAE and GCC to visit just in time for the summer holidays.”
