Air Arabia Abu Dhabi is the upcoming low-cost joint venture between two of the UAE airlines – Sharjah based Air Arabia and Abu Dhabi’s Etihad. The joint venture is one of the two new low-cost airlines being launched in the capital of the Emirates – the other being a joint venture between Wizz Air and Abu Dhabi Developmental Holding Company (ADDH).

While Etihad management has stated the new airline is meant to complement Etihad’s existing operations, it is worth noting that Etihad’s regional operation is itself moving in a low-cost direction. While the two new airlines may increase accessibility to Abu Dhabi they could also push Etihad’s yield in a downward direction.

Air Arabia Abu Dhabi’s files for 11 destinations

RoutesOnline is reporting that Etihad has filed the following routes for the new airline. While these routes have not yet been announced, they are set to begin at the end of March 2020. The flights will be operated with Airbus A320 aircraft.

Some of the upcoming routes used to be served by Etihad and were cut in recent years as part of the airline’s push towards profitability.

Almaty – Three times weekly – Etihad served this route until October 2016
Dhaka – Daily – Etihad served this route until September 2018
Faisalabad – Daily
Jaipur – Daily – Etihad served this route until February 2018
Kyiv Borispil – Three times weekly
Multan – Daily
Peshawar – Daily – Etihad served this route until December 2014
Taif – Four times weekly
Tbilisi – Daily
Yanbu – Three times weekly
Yerevan – Four times weekly – Etihad served this route until August 2015
Daily Jaipur flight

One of the airline’s routes will be a daily flight from Abu Dhabi to Jaipur. The route has been filed to launch from 29 March 2020. Etihad served this route with an A320 till February 2018.

The schedule for the new route is:
EY1350 AUH0015 – 0505JAI 320 D
EY1351 JAI0545 – 0745AUH 320 D

None of the new routes are currently operated by Etihad, so for the moment, there will be no duplication of routes on the JV’s network.
