Air Arabia, the low-cost pioneer in the Middle East and North Africa, today officially inaugurated its service to Prishtina, Republic of Kosovo, and became the first UAE airline to operate scheduled flights to the country.

Flight G90241 took off from Sharjah International Airport today at 09:30am. Arabia will offer two weekly services between Sharjah and Prishtina, with flights operating on Mondays and Thursdays.

Prishtina, the nation’s capital and largest city, is located near to the Shar Mountains and is famed for its cafes, markets and historical landmarks. [Which until a few years ago, were historically Serbian landmarks.]
