You expect from no frills airlines certain efficiency in the way in which they run their business which is how they make their money. Not with Air Arabia! First the check in. Online link didn’t work so had to check in at the airport. Only 2 desks were available so that meant a queue that shouldn’t have taken 10 minutes...

I took Air Arabia several times from Sharjah to Istanbul, Faisalabad, Tbilisi and from Ras Al Khaimah to Lahore.No Food, No entertainment, No customer service but this is why they charge less.

Terrible airline, took my money and gave poor service, refused to take my payment when changing my ticket although it was within the time gap they specified in their terms and conditions therefore forcing me to not be able to change my flight or board it and having to book another ticket elsewhere. Worst airline ever, do not book with...

If u want to come back from Dubai, don’t take Air Arabia. Sharjah airport is too crowded during night time. Not able to handle too much crowd. So avoid if you can

Very Good airline in budget category based in Sharjah. Very prompt service. I have travelled Sharjah to Kochi & back with family around 2 times. Also travelled to Qatar & Riyadh for business travel. Inflight services are also very good. Regarding leg space, it is less as in all budget airlines. Check-in baggage & food, we have to purchase separately....

Air Arabia offers direct flight to Nairobi. Earlier one had to fly from Mumbai by Air Kenya. The flight from Bangalore to Sharjah is at 4 am and the connecting flight is 2 hours later from Sharjah to Nairobi. The flight is convenient as one is too tired and just sleeps through the entire journey. The best part is most...

Air Arabia is by far, the best Airline in the Low cost Airline segment. I prefer Air Arabia due to the very convenient timings it offers to Hyd (10:00 PM) and back to Sharjah (morning 4:00 am dep in Hyd). Though Sharjah Airport is a cumbersome experience, this flight makes up for the same. The Legroom offered by this airline...
