Air Arabia is also introducing a new route. Starting from October 16, it will fly from Ras Al Khaimah to Dhaka. Return fares start from Dh2,261 ($615). It's the first time the airline has scheduled regular direct commercial flights to the capital of Bangladesh from the northern emirate airport.

Flights are scheduled to depart the UAE on Wednesdays and Fridays at 2.35pm and land in Bangladesh at 9.15pm. Return flights leave Dhaka about an hour later, arriving in Ras Al Khaimah after 1am the following day.

Air Arabia is the first airline to resume scheduled commercial flights from Ras Al Khaimah International Airport after it closed to prevent the spread of Covid-19 via air travel.

Residents and visitors can once again fly into the airport and strict protocols have been introduced to help keep passengers safe.

These include possessing adequate health insurance, obtaining a negative Covid-19 test result no longer than four days before travelling, and completing a health disclosure form.

Arriving passengers must download the Al-Hosn app, undertake another coronavirus test upon arrival and self-quarantine at their destination hotel or residence until the results of the test are known.
