AIR Arabia LLC, the first international low-fares airline in India, has tied up with Kingfisher Air to offer customers in Mangalore direct flights to the United Arab Emirates.

A press statement from Air Arabia said with a single reservation, passengers will be able to fly via Kingfisher Airlines to Mumbai and then to the Gulf with Air Arabia. The airline offers savings of up to 30 per cent against competing airlines, the statement said.

The fares start from Rs 6,800 for a one-way journey, excluding taxes.

These flights offer easier travel options to the Gulf for passengers from North Kerala, the Malabar coast and the rest of Karnataka, since Mangalore is easily accessible to these regions. The airline also offers visit visa service for all passengers arriving in Sharjah, the statement said.
