The UAE Cabinet has approved Air Arabia Abu Dhabi as a national carrier airline for the UAE in order to enhance civil aviation in the country and to allow the aviation sector to keep pace with future development plans and directions, said a report.
The Resolution reflects the importance the government attaches to the aviation sector. The UAE government invested considerable efforts to improve this sector and support all the businesses working in it. The government gives the aviation sector all forms of support in line with the comprehensive development plans occurring in the country, said a report in WAM.
Etihad Aviation Group, owner of the national airline of the UAE, and Air Arabia, the Middle East and North Africa’s first and largest low-cost carrier, signed an agreement in October to launch ‘Air Arabia Abu Dhabi’, the capital’s first low-cost carrier.
Etihad and Air Arabia will establish an independent joint venture company that will operate as a low-cost passenger airline with its hub in Abu Dhabi International Airport. The new carrier will complement Etihad Airways’ services from Abu Dhabi and will cater to the growing low-cost travel market segment in the region.
