A new flight from Grozny to Sharjah may become one of the most popular for residents of the entire North Caucasus. This is an important step for the development of international air traffic in the region.
Today, the passengers of the first flight of Grozny-Sharjah were escorted by a large delegation headed by the vice-premier of the government of the Chechen republic. According to him, the opening of new international air routes is one of the strategic tasks of the region.
Negotiations with the largest air carrier in the Middle East and North Africa “Air Arabia” went on for about a year and has finally been agreed on.
“At first they did not plan to include a flight to our republic at all, but negotiations, they agreed to provide two flights a week first, and in the future they plan to increase the number of weekly flights between Grozny-Sharjah,” confirmed Khasan Khakimov, Vice Prime Minister of of the Chechen Republic.
For residents of Chechnya, a direct flight from Grozny to the UAE is special. In the past, theyt had to travel to neighboring regions, and this is at least 3 hours by car. The prices of tickets for flights that depart from Chechnya are also lower than other regions.
Air Arabia covers more than 140 destinations, with major carrier airports being in the UAE, Morocco, Jordan and Egypt – and now also Chechnya.
