Ras Al Khaimah International Airport (RAK Airport) is gearing up to receive the first commercial flights from Indian value carrier SpiceJet on Thursday.
Operating an initial schedule of twice-weekly flights, SpiceJet’s first tranche of services will connect travellers to Indira Gandhi International Airport, Delhi, allowing passengers to fly to 28 destinations within India, with further destinations to be added moving forward.
SpiceJet’s cheapest return flight ticket on the Delhi-Ras Al Khaimah-Delhi route is priced at Dh730, including free road transportation from Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah.
SpiceJet recently had its profile raised among the Indian community in the UAE due to its efforts in flying home Indian nationals at the height of the COVID-19 outbreak. In response to an Indian government initiative and in partnership with RAK Airport, the airline repatriated almost 53,000 Indian nationals on around 300 flights from the beginning of June.
SpiceJet’s commercial operations from RAK Airport will see flight SG 160, a Boeing 737-800 with 189-passenger capacity, depart from Indira Gandhi International Airport Delhi at 10.30pm on Thursday and Sunday, landing at Ras Al Khaimah International Airport at 12.50am on Friday and Monday. The return flight SG 161 departs RAK Airport at 1.50am on Monday and Friday, landing in Delhi at 6.40am. More SpiceJet destinations across the Indian subcontinent will be added in the coming months.
