Air Arabia Offers Round Trip Sharjah Deal

Air Arabia is offering a round trip ticket and one month tourist visa for Sharjah for Dh975.   Head of Air Arabia’s commercial department, Ak Nizar, said they are offering the special summer promotion to travelers at any of the 46 destinations they serve.  The promotion began on 15 June and is valid for travel to Sharjah until 31 July.  Return flights must take place between 16 July and 10 September.

Ak Nizar said the offer includes a 30 day UAE tourist visa inclusive of surcharges but it does not include airport charges.  He said they are offering the promotion because not all UAE families have the chance to visit families and friends outside the country. He said “Through this special summer offer, Air Arabia can connect families and friends across the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia – the airlines destinations.”
