I have visited the United Arab Emirates four times now, and it wasn’t until the most recent visit which I learned there exists another international airport just 30 minutes north of Dubai in Sharjah. Sharjah International Airport is smaller in size and generally offers cheaper flights than flying out of Dubai. For this trip, I was going to Armenia for the first time, and after some research, decided to fly with AirArabia which I had just recently learned about! AirArabia is based out of Sharjah and it was clear because nearly every plane I saw was theirs!

I was delighted that we boarded on schedule and in a smooth manner. The AirArabia flight from Sharjah, United Arab Emirates to Yerevan, Armenia was on-board a Airbus A320 and the flight time was two hours and 45 minutes.
Upon boarding the aircraft, I was immediately greeted with a very friendly face. The interior of the aircraft was comfortable and all seats had lots of legroom. We departed on-time and before I knew it, the food and beverage service had begun.
AirArabia has an in-flight magazine and in the middle of the magazine is the Sky Café food and beverage menu. I was pleasantly surprised with all of the options and varieties of food and drink. I went for a European meal and the food turned out to be quite tasty. I ate it all, down to the last morsel!
The flight went very smooth from beginning to end. We didn’t even hit any turbulence along the way and I got a good view of all of the mountains we passed over. The staff were pleasant the entire journey, my seat was comfortable with spacious leg room, and the food turned out to be quite good. This was a flawless flight and I can easily recommend AirArabia to anyone. If you’re looking to save some money, and fly out of an easier to navigate airport, look no further than flying out of Sharjah International Airport with AirArabia!
