Why Fly with Air Arabia

How to Check In

You can check in for an Air Arabia flight online from 24 hours up to 4 hours before flights if you are leaving from Sharjah, while at all other airports you can check-in from 12 hours before departure times. You can also print your boarding pass which means if you have no bags to check in you can go straight to the gate. Alternatively, you can check in at the airport from 3 hours up to 1 hour before an economy flight and up to 45 minutes before a business class flight. There is no additional charge for the printing of your boarding pass. Travelers are also able to select a preferred seat online if you want to sit by the window or together with family and friends.

Baggage Allowance and Fees

Air Arabia offer a generous 10kg of hand luggage for all flights with dimensions no larger than 55 x 40 x 20 cms. There is also the opportunity to pay for the baggage you need. You can select your checked baggage weight while booking or changing your flight - the options are 20 Kg, 30 Kg or 40 Kg with no limit on the number of pieces of luggage you bring. Excess baggage is charged from 10-50 AED per kilogram depending on your destination. Be advised that the maximum weight per item of baggage is 32kg in compliance with international regulations.


If you check in online you can pre-select your preferred seats for a small fee, and you are guaranteed to get these on arrival at the airport. Alternatively, if you do not wish to pay an additional fee, simply leave this option blank when online booking and the airline will allocate you a seat free of charge. Families are able to ensure that they sit together on the plane, also at the online booking stage.

Booking Fees

Air Arabia believe that you should only pay for the services that you need, which is why they charge for drinks, food and pre-selected seating. You can of course choose to opt out of all these extras and incur no further charges.
