About Air Arabia Abu Dhabi

The low-cost carrier, a joint venture between Etihad Airways and Air Arabia, has been based at Abu Dhabi International Airport since its commencement in July 2020. With the addition of Tbilisi, it now services 23 flights from Abu Dhabi.

Etihad also code-shares with the airline, which means that flights between Etihad’s worldwide network and Air Arabia Abu Dhabi’s short-haul network can be booked directly.

Despite the fact that Air Arabia Abu Dhabi was formed in collaboration with Etihad, it remains committed to the low-cost carrier Air Arabia’s business model. Although it functions as a regional carrier feeding into Etihad’s network, the whole experience is distinct from Etihad’s.
