This was a very short flight (25 minutes from takeoff to touchdown) and I didn't expect much but was very pleasantly surprised by the level of attention from the cabin crew and the quality of the snack and was served (especially given the short flight). I'd fly them again for sure.

The option to fly to Dubai/ Sharjah at an affordable price is given by Air Arabia. Plus points- Good fare, Clean aircraft, comfortable seats compared to some Indian carriers. Minus points- unfriendly cabin crew, no in flight entertainment, unfriendly check in staff, particularly at Sharjah airport. Costly food in the aircraft. They don't even offer water to passengers.Wash rooms are...

The whole trip was just fine. It was on time and the crews were friendly. The only thing that caught my attention was the fighting of the 3 passengers inside the plane because of the seat arrangement. They were shouting and it was so annoying to the passengers considering that it as an early morning flight. The crews did not...

This is a no-frills / budget airline, so one shouldn't have high expectations --- ultimately, you get what you pay for. I'll rate them based on their customer support & on-time performance, which have been very good, save a recent incident... I received a notification about my flight getting re-scheduled less than 10 days before my travel, with no options...

It is fine, bit longer transit hour. Compared to other airlines, it is bit cheaper too. I recommend this flight to go to Central Asia.

You have to pay for food, it is not included in air fares or book food online while booking ticket. Service was fine but the issue is when you transit at Sharjah Airport, that place is full of Indian peoples. There is no such entertaining place to find in that airport and its too much crowded with Indian people. It...

Air Arabia is a budget airline. If you want food, it is best to preorder as they serve the preordered food first then sell to the remaining passengers. We booked exit row seats on the longer segment of our flights. Flights were all on time. No inflight entertainment. I would definitely fly with them again as they were about half...
