  • Two weekly flights connecting Sharjah and Hargeisa starting July 4th  

Sharjah, UAE; 14 June 2017:  Air Arabia, the Middle East and North Africa's first and largest low-cost carrier (LCC), announced today that starting 4 July 2017, Hargeisa will be the newest African destination added to its growing international network. 

Air Arabia marked its entry into the African market in 2004, and currently serves six destinations across Egypt, Sudan and Kenya from its main hub in Sharjah. The new flights to Hargeisa, Somaliland will operate twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays, departing Sharjah International Airport (SHJ) at 03:45 hours, and arriving at Hargeisa Egal International Airport (HGA) at 06:15 local time. The return flight will depart Hargeisa at 06:55, landing in Sharjah at 11:25 local time.

“Hargeisa offers travellers a unique blend of contemporary and modern experiences from one street to the next and the city has all the amenities a traveller could wish for: from culture to commercial and more,” said Adel Al Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer of Air Arabia. “We are glad to announce this new route and are confident that this will establish Hargeisa as a destination of choice and appeal to the growing tourism and trade sectors”. 

Hargeisa, currently undergoing a rapid transformation focussed on economic growth and development, has an estimated population of 1.2 million people and is a vibrant commercial centre and a hub for the construction, retail and precious stone-cutting sectors.

Air Arabia currently operates flights to over 130 routes across the globe from five hubs located in the Middle East and North Africa.
