Well I for one would have imagined them to have been more successful on the route with their newer A320, low fares, world class standard choice of snacks and drinks even though one has to pay for them, better crew etc, a definite hit with more quality concious passengers and western expats who may have to take an occassional round of KBL for business, better than what Ariana has to offer on the route even with the larger A300.

Would expect the same if Air Arabia had to reciprocate the service to Tashkent for which Uzbek use a 767, Urumqi which is a China Southern 757, Dushanbe which is a Tajik Tu154 all of these aircraft are the largest of their fleets, even for China Southern's Xinjiang subsidiary.

All of the airlines above fly into Sharjah with the aircrafts mentioned, so how come Air Arabia cant find a market in these countries with a better product.

Are you serious? Never laughed so much in a long time. How on earth do you have such a thing. Can I have a packet of nuts and make them world class standard please!

Its a low cost airline for gods sake, you sound like a press release.

Compared to Ariana they are definitely World Class even with the peanuts served, how many people would want to risk flying with Ariana when they can choose the latter, Ariana may be a pleasent surprise for soem who dare to fly them but on teh SHJ-KBL route Air Arabia would be top choice for many, depsite being an LCC, its like comparing Easy Jet and Belavia,which would you fly if they operaed from western Europe to Minsk?

Mascarone,
Your ugly comment about Arabs is not taken lightly over here. Where would you be without those Arab airlines offering SO many opportunities for young expats to prove themselves?

Your other theory about Arabs being visionless and incapable of running their airlines is equally dumb. Look at older airlines like MEA, Royal Jordanian, and Egypt Air, theve have been around long before your mother delivered you. Obviously, they were/are doing something right.

Ever heard of Dr. Assad Kotaite? Quit bashing Arabs, and instead, aim for some insight.

Poor pay and [email protected] schedules from what I have read. Potential to upgrade if growth continues and you don't mind Sharjah and poor pay (unless you have a good contract).

Good luck

Air Arabia new destinations

The have started services to two cities in Kazakhstan, Almaty twice weekly and Astana once a week, interestingly they are only the third foreign airline to serve Astana.

On the other hand Etihad Cargo have suspended their weekly service to Almaty which was launched just a couple of months back making them the first Arab carrier to fly there and to the central Asian region as well.

I thought that Air Arabia was following a low cost carrier concept, i find it strange that they have chosen these destintations!

Hi Mutt,

It is sexual meat hauling if you know what i mean

Prices have been on the increase ... the more of them around, the lower the prices... therefore more visitors...

Back in the days , camel caravans did the job. They are replaced today with shiny new A320's...

Hey Concordine & Left Wing

As a local residents of the region it is also your social obligation to ease the market by contributing some from your own household to the market to keep the economy evolving within, so you could grab more of the mighty $$$

Probably lack of loads-- Kabul I imagine isn't a hot tourist destination, and while there is lots of "meat" there, it turns out that it was mostly goats-- and well experienced ones at that-- thanks to Unkle Osama and the Taliban spending a few months in caves with little to do until the bombing stopped.

Sure, low-cost flights for even lower-cost entertainment, but the Dubai crowd has slightly more refined tastes.
