The low-cost airline will offer direct flights to a number of regional destinations.
Confirmed are Alexandria and Sohag in Egypt, with more to be announced in the coming weeks.
The inaugural flight will depart Abu Dhabi for Alexandria on July 14.
Flights to Alexandria’s Borg Al Arab International Airport will take place three times a week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
“In these extraordinary times, it gives us great pride to launch Air Arabia Abu Dhabi, the capital’s first low-cost carrier,” said Tony Douglas, Group CEO, Etihad Aviation Group.
“This joint venture between Etihad and Air Arabia will offer greater convenience and direct access to the UAE’s thriving capital for new markets worldwide, beginning with two key Egyptian routes, and expanding in time.
“Abu Dhabi has earned itself an exceptional reputation for business and leisure travel alike, and we look forward to seeing the emirate continue to prosper as the current global situation improves and markets begin to reopen.”
Flights tickets are now on sale on the Air Arabia Abu Dhabi website for the first flights.
