Air Arabia, the low cost airline of UAE with its hub in Sharjah, will open new route to Prague, the capital of Czech Republic, from December 11, offering good connectivity from 13 stations in India to the Central European capital through its hub Sharjah. The carrier will operate four frequencies a week with inaugural return ticket starting from INR 37,000.  This was informed by Sachin Nene, Country Head, Air Arabia at an event organised at the Czech Embassy to announce the new connection. 

Nene said that to promote the new route, the airline company will launch massive outdoor and radio campaign pan-India commencing September 1. He said that while many full-service carriers operate to Prague, Air Arabia will offer good value to the travellers.  He said that out of the four operations to Prague, two flights will offer very well connection to Indian flights from 13 destinations in India, while the remaining two will offer convenient connection to the GCC flights, another key market for Air Arabia.

Terming the Air Arabia connectivity to Prague from Sharjah a significant one for Czech Tourism, Arzan Khambatta, Head-India, Czech Tourism said that it will be a big boost to the targeted 1 lakh Indian tourists to Czech Republic by 2019. He said that while Prague is quite popular among Indian tourists, the focus is to introduce more destinations in Czech to Indian trade.  

Roman Masarik, Deputy Head of Mission, Minister Counsellor, Embassy of Czech Republic in India said that although many full service carriers offer connections to Prague from different hubs, Air Arabia connection will be significant since it connects many Tier II and III cities in India. “Other carriers operate either from Delhi or Mumbai.

When asked about chances of direct flights between India and Czech Republic, the Deputy Head of Mission said that there is an open sky regime existing between the two countries, and issues of direct connectivity, etc., will be negotiated at the forthcoming visit of Indian President to the Czech Republic.
