Air Arabia, the Middle East and North Africa’s first and largest low-cost carrier (LCC), has announced plans to launch flights to Grozny, capital of the Chechen Republic in Russia, beginning on April 20.

Air Arabia’s Russia network, which recently increased by launching flights to Sheremetyevo International Airport - adding a second route for travel to the Russian capital - has been extended to include the city of Grozny from April 2018.

The Grozny flight will operate three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, departing Sharjah International Airport (SHJ) at 13:00 hours and arriving at Grozny International Airport at 16:10 hours local time. The return flight will depart Grozny at 17:15 hours, landing in Sharjah at 19:50 hours local time.

Adel Al Ali, group chief executive officer of Air Arabia, said: “Expanding our Russia network, to include the new state capital of Grozny, forms an important part of Air Arabia’s ongoing commitment to our passengers to access affordable and unique holiday destinations. This new flight option will offer passengers the opportunity to explore Grozny and experience the rich history and culture of this exciting city, at great value. The new route adds to our existing network in Russia, which already includes Moscow.”

Located on the banks of the Sunzha River, Grozny has a rich and diverse, history and is home to the Akhmad Kadyrov Mosque, one of the most lavish in the world. Completed in 2008, it is locally known as the Heart of Chechnya and is by far the largest mosque in Russia.
