UAE airlines are preparing to resume normal return flight operations in May and June with budget airline Air Arabia by opening reservations for their regular return flights to various destinations in Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
Except for Air Arabia, return flight schedules have not been made available, as local carriers still await the ease of restrictions on international flights from the UAE and other regulators around the world.
The low-cost airline has opened reservations for regular flights back to Mumbai, Delhi, Trivandrum, Karachi, Peshawar, Dhaka, Colombo, Beirut, Cairo, Jeddah, Riyadh, Moscow and Vienna, among others, since June 1, 2020.
Based on the flight departure time on June 1 from Sharjah and return on June 10, Air Arabia’s departure from Sharjah to Mumbai starts from Dh910 for economy class, Dh1,055 to Trivandrum and Dh885 to the capital India New Delhi. It also opened bookings for regular flights to Pakistan with initial air fares from Dh1,071 to Karachi and Dh1,452 to Peshawar, while the fare back to Colombo starts from Dh1,261 and Dh1,448 to the Bangladeshi capital Dhaka.
Airfare back to the cities of Beirut, Jeddah, and Riyadh in the Middle East begins from Dh1,259, Dh1,341, and Dh1,123, respectively. Similarly, Sharjah to Moscow starts from Dh1,381 and Dh1,699 to Vienna.
