Phuket, Thailand’s largest island, is a tropical paradise renowned for its stunning beaches, crystal-clear waters, and vibrant cultural scene. Nestled in the Andaman Sea, Phuket offers a diverse range of experiences, from bustling markets to the tranquility of Kata and Karon beaches. Air Arabia operates a fleet of Airbus A320 and A321 neo-LR aircraft, the most modern and best-selling single aisle aircraft in the world. The cabin configuration across the fleet provides added comfort with one of the most generous seat-pitch compared to any economy cabin. The aircraft is also equipped with ‘SkyTime’, a free in-flight streaming service that allows passengers to stream a wide selection of entertainment directly to their devices. Customers can also enjoy a variety of delicacies between snacks, meals, and sandwiches from the on-board ‘SkyCafe’ menu at affordable prices.

Customers can now book their direct flights from Sharjah to Phuket by visiting Air Arabia’s website, by calling the call centre, or through travel agencies.
