Low cost carrier Air Arabia Abu Dhabi to begin flights to Faisalabad and Multan in Pakistan

Both routes will be begin in August, and will be operated twice weekly

Low cost carrier Air Arabia Abu Dhabi will launch two new routes to Pakistan next month, it has announced.

A new service to Faisalabad will begin from August 10, 2021 and flights to Multan will start on August 11, it said in a statement.

Both routes will be operated twice a week using an Airbus A320 aircraft.

Flight 3L225 will depart from Abu Dhabi at 10.30am and land in Faisalabad at 2.40pm. The return flight 3L226 will leave from the Pakistani city at 3.20pm, arriving in the UAE capital at 5.35pm. The service will operate on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Meanwhile flight 3L215 to Multan will depart from Abu Dhabi at 10.30am and arrive at 2.20pm. The return flight 3L216 will depart from Multan at 3pm and land in the UAE capital at 5pm. The service will operate on Mondays and Wednesdays.

The UAE has currently banned the entry of flights from Pakistan, although the country’s citizens, diplomats and UAE golden visa holders are permitted to return to the country.

Air Arabia Abu Dhabi started operations last year with two Airbus A320 aircraft based in Abu Dhabi International Airport.

The airline – the UAE’s fifth – was formed following an agreement by Etihad Airways and Air Arabia to establish an independent joint venture company that will operate as a low-cost passenger airline with Abu Dhabi International Airport as its hub.
