Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Tuesday, 24 February 2009

Sharjah-based low cost airline, Air Arabia, is to launch flights to the Greek city of Athens, beginning 21 April 2009.

Roundtrip flights will operate three times per week between Athens Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport in the capital of Greece, and Air Arabia’s hub in Sharjah.

Air Arabia will fly to Athens on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, departing Sharjah at 18:55 and arriving at Athens at 22:45. Return flights will depart Athens at 23:30 and arrive in Sharjah at 05:20.

Air Arabia’s first destination in Greece is also the carrier’s first destination in the European Union. In total, Air Arabia now serves 45 destinations across the Middle East, North Africa, Indian Subcontinent, Central Asia and the Southern Europe.

AK Nizar, Head of Commercial Department, said, “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.”

Athens, the largest city in Greece, is one of the world's oldest cities with recorded history spanning some 3,400 years. A bustling and cosmopolitan metropolis, Athens is central to economic, financial, industrial, political and cultural life in Greece. With over 16 million visitors every year, tourism contributes 15% to the US$350 billion Greek economy.
