Air Arabia Abu Dhabi is set to launch a new service to Cairo.

The low-cost airline will begin flying to the Egyptian capital from September 24, and will operate a daily return route on its Airbus A320.

The flight will depart Abu Dhabi International Airport at 9.20pm each day, arriving in Cairo at 10.40pm local time. The return flight will depart Cairo at 11.20pm, landing back in Abu Dhabi at 4.45am the next morning.

Cairo joins Air Arabia Abu Dhabi's growing network in Egypt – the airline currently offers flights from Abu Dhabi to Alexandria and Sohag.

The new service is the fifth route for Air Arabia Abu Dhabi since the launch of the carrier on July 14. It also flies to Kabul and Dhaka.

Air Arabia's Covid-19 safety measures are in line with the highest international measures, and its entire fleet is fitted with Hepa cabin air filters to provide a healthier environment while travelling. However, all passengers will need to comply with the conditions and requirements of the countries of departure and destination.

The UAE's fifth national airline was formed after an agreement between Etihad Airways and Air Arabia to establish the capital’s first low-cost carrier, which follows Air Arabia's business model and complements Etihad's services. The airline plans to build its network as more countries ease travel restrictions.
