One of the leading low-cost carriers in the Middle East, Air Arabia, will now offer daily flights for those who have purchased tickets to the most eagerly awaited international FIFA World Cup 2022. The airline operates daily shuttle flights alongside flydubai, Qatar Airways, and Saudia Airlines.
Air Arabia stated it had scheduled more than 200 extra flights to accommodate the high demand on the route during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 in an official notice on the airline’s website. These additional flights will go between Sharjah International Airport and Hamad International Airport in Doha along the same route as the current flights. The start date for these flights is November 21st, 2022, on a Monday.
From the usual three flights between Doha and Sharjah, the low-cost carrier will operate 14 flights daily. These flights will run during the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, with the final flight on December 18, 2018, the day of the last game.
These shuttle flights are solely accessible to pass holders, like other carriers operating shuttle flights throughout the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022. On these shuttle flights, travelers can bring 10 kilograms of hand luggage. Bookings for these shuttle flights can now be on the Air Arabia website. The starting fare is about AED 530 for one-way travel.
Ticket holders must sign up for a Hayya card through the main website to reach Qatar, gain entry to the venues, and receive transport services to and from the venues via the Doha Metro from Hamad International Airport.
According to Adel Al Ali, group chief executive officer of Air Arabia, “shuttle flights will give fans convenient, dependable, and timely access in and out of Doha to enjoy the games and return directly after.” Air Arabia advised all passengers to carefully arrange their journeys, getting to Doha at least four hours before a game and leaving four hours after it.
Additionally, Flydubai confirmed match-day flights that would make it simple for ticket holders to travel between Dubai and Doha. Throughout the FIFA World Cup 2022, the airline runs up to 30 round-trip flights daily.
Qatar Airways announced last week that it would briefly adjust its flight schedule to accommodate the anticipated increase in flight demand during the FIFA World Cup 2022. Akbar Al Baker, chief executive of Qatar Airways, stated that “we have to withdraw from numerous locations to relieve load and provide a place for other carriers to come to Doha and use the slots, which otherwise would be practically impossible to sustain.”
