Sharjah-based Air Arabia has launched non-stop flights to the Greek city of Athens. The launch of this new destination is part of Air Arabia’s strategy to expand its operations to Europe.

Roundtrip flights will operate three times per week between Athens Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport, and Air Arabia’s hub in Sharjah, the third-largest city in the United Arab Emirates.

The airline will fly to Athens on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, departing Sharjah at 18:55 to arrive in 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 a European Union country and the third destination on the European continent.

In total, Air Arabia now serves 46 destinations across the Middle East, North Africa, the Indian Subcontinent, Central Asia and Southern Europe.
