Air Arabia, the Middle East and North Africa's first and largest low-cost carrier (LCC) launched its inaugural flight to Sohar yesterday, making it the first international flight to commence operations at the Sohar Airport.
The Air Arabia flight will operate three times a week, on Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays, departing from Sharjah International Airport (SHJ) at 08:00 hours, and arriving at Sohar International Airport (OHS) at 08:40 local time. The return flight departs from Sohar at 09:20, landing in Sharjah at 10:00 local time.
The new route complements Air Arabia's existing operations in Muscat and Salalah, boosts travel and trade opportunities between the two Gulf countries, and provides hassle-free travel options to the residents of Sohar.
