DUBAI, Oct. 15 (Xinhua) -- Air Arabia from Sharjah, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), will fly from Nov. 6 two times per week to Sulaimaniyah in northern Iraq, the fourth destination in Iraq, it said via e-mail on Monday.
Sulaimaniyah will also mark Air Arabia's 152nd destination globally.
The low-cost carrier, which solely flies with a current fleet of 51 Airbus A320 planes, will serve the new direct flights to Mesopotamia every Tuesday and Friday.
