As part of a special inaugural promotion, fares on this route will start at just Dh505, exclusive of taxes and surcharges.
Air Arabia will operate the Sharjah-Kathmandu leg of the journey, with FlyYeti.com, an Air Arabia joint venture company, operating the connecting flights between Kathmandu and Kuala Lumpur.
On a daily basis, outbound flights will depart Sharjah at 7:15am, and inbound flights will depart Kuala Lumpur at 4:55am.
“We are delighted to announce the launch of service to Kuala Lumpur, providing travelers to Southeast Asia with the high level of service and extremely competitive fares they have come to expect from Air Arabia and FlyYeti.com,” said Adel Ali, board member and CEO of Air Arabia and Yeti Airlines International, the parent of FlyYeti.com.
