Passengers of low cost Sharjah-based airline Air Arabia, are now able to select their choice of seat upon making a flight reservation. This new service, aimed at giving passengers improved choice, comes in the wake of this month's launch of an early check-in procedure.

Air Arabia passengers can take advantage of the new seat selection service through all the available booking channels including websites, call centre, travel agencies and sales shops. The new service will be available for a nominal fee starting at AED 5.

AK Nizar, Head of Commercial Department, Air Arabia, said, "Enabling customers to select their seats and take advantage of our early check-in procedure is in line with our continued commitment to offer more choices and added convenience. All our passengers will benefit from this service, as it will make the boarding of our flights more efficient than ever."

In the first half of 2008, Air Arabia carried more than 1.6 million passengers, an increase of 33% compared to 1.2 million passengers in the corresponding period last year.

The company purchased three aircraft during the first half of this year and increased frequencies to its existing destinations. Air Arabia also introduced four new destinations in the first six months of this year, including Kozhikode, India; New Delhi, India; Shiraz, Iran; and Dhaka, Bangladesh. This increased Air Arabia's total network to 41 destinations across the Middle East, North Africa, South Asia and Central Asia.
