Air Arabia plans to start flights to Chittagong in Bangladesh from its new hub in Ras Al Khaimah next month. The three flights per week flights will start from September 2. Chittagong, Bangladesh’s second-largest city with a population of over 6.5 million, is located on the country’s coastline and becomes the 98th destination serviced by Air Arabia worldwide and second in Bangladesh, Trade Arabia reported. The airline currently operates 14 flights to Dhaka, the nation’s capital city, every week. Adel Ali, group chief executive officer, Air Arabia, said: “Air Arabia is delighted to announce the introduction of our new service between Ras Al Khaimah and Chittagong. We have a strong association with Bangladesh having run flights to the country since 2007. As we close in on our 100th destination worldwide, it is fitting that we are strengthening our connectivity with a market that possesses such strong growth potential for both tourism and business.”
