Travellers can already book tickets directly on the Air Arabia website, with return fares from Dhs2,000.

For an escape filled with just the right amount of adventure, culture, and wellness, there are plenty of reasons to add Sri Lanka to your bucket list.

Say ayubowan (hello) to endless green landscapes, tree plantations, wildlife, rainforests, and waterfalls. Some of the main attractions in Sri Lanka include taking the picturesque train ride from Kandy to Ella, climbing Sigiriya Rock, and checking out some of the beautiful beaches including Dalawella.

You can fill your itinerary with as many or as few day trips as you wish (taking time out to sip locally-grown tea by the infinity pool is totally acceptable and encouraged).

Since the inception of its routes operating from Abu Dhabi, Air Arabia continues to build global connectivity out of the UAE capital, servicing 28 destinations with a fleet of 10 Airbus A320 aircraft from the newly-opened Terminal A at Abu Dhabi International Airport.
