The Middle East's first low-cost carrier, Air Arabia was established in 2003 by the Ruler of Sharjah and the Supreme Council of the United Arab Emirates, and is now a publically-listed company based in Sharjah with secondary hubs in Casablanca and Cairo. With its fleet of A320s, Air Arabia’s network includes services within the Middle East, the Indian Subcontinent and Europe. Air Arabia has established subsidiary airlines in Morocco and Egypt with local investors in each country. This is part of the airline's strategy to create the first pan-Arab airline.
