Etihad launches new low-cost airline for the region

Travel can be expensive, especially when you’re visiting far flung locations, and now that you’ve tasted Business Class you can’t look back.

We mean, obviously not us, we’re economy for life, but we all know someone with a taste for finer things.

If you’re thinking of going on a trip and don’t want to break the bank then we’ve got some good news.

Etihad Aviation Group has signed an agreement with Air Arabia to launch a low-cost airline based out of the UAE capital.

Air Arabia Abu Dhabi is the capital’s first low-cost airline and will soon be offering flights from Abu Dhabi to locations across the region.

“Abu Dhabi is a thriving cultural hub with a clear economic vision built on sustainability and diversification,” said Tony Douglas, group CEO of Etihad Aviation Group.

“With the emirate’s diverse attractions and hospitality offerings, travel and tourism play a vital role in the economic growth of the capital and the UAE.

“By partnering with Air Arabia and launching Abu Dhabi’s first low-cost carrier, we are serving this long-term vision.

“This exciting partnership supports our transformation programme and will offer our guests a new option for low-cost travel to and from Abu Dhabi, supplementing our own services.

“We look forward to the launch of the new airline in due course”.

Information on locations, prices and new flight path launch dates are set to be announced in the coming months.

We can’t wait to see what’s on offer.
