Earlier this week, Air Arabia Abu Dhabi announced a new route to Colombo, Sri Lanka, as the carrier continues to grow its network portfolio.

Such services will begin on January 3, 2024, with the route operating on a thrice-weekly basis.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

“The new route enables passengers to discover the beauty of the island located in the Indian Ocean and reflects our commitment to offering customers affordable and value-driven air travel experience.” 

Colombo will become Air Arabia Abu Dhabi’s 34th destination in the route network, with plenty of growth experienced over the course of this year.

Their latest route announcement before this was to Lar, Iran, which was announced late last month.

All eyes are now on the carrier to see where else they choose to expand their portfolio into.
