Air Arabia, the Middle East and North Africa’s first and largest low-cost carrier, recently announced that it will begin regular direct services to Tbilisi, Georgia, from October 28.
Tbilisi will be Air Arabia’s 100th global destination. Air Arabia will fly twice weekly to Tbilisi from its primary Sharjah International Airport hub on Tuesdays and Fridays at 1:00pm, arriving at Tbilisi International Airport at 4:30pm that afternoon. Return flights will depart Tbilisi on the same days at 5:10pm and arrive in Sharjah at 8:20pm.
The capital and largest city of Georgia, Tbilisi, located in the beautiful Caucasus Mountains, is home to 1.5 million people. An increasingly popular tourism destination, it is Georgia’s social and economic centre. A landmark on the Silk Route located at the crossroads of Eastern Europe and Western Asia, Georgia has a vibrant history with a rich tapestry of different cultures brought together under a single flag over the last millennium. Steeped in tradition it has experienced a period of rapid development and modernisation over the past two decades becoming one of the fastest growing economies in Eastern Europe.
Recently voted amongst the 10 most profitable low-cost carriers in the world by Airline Business, Air Arabia’s route network increased in the first half of this year with the addition on new routes such as Cairo in Egypt and Antalya in Turkey from its main base at Sharjah International Airport. It currently operates from four hubs in the UAE, Morocco and Egypt.
