Flydubai adds another Romanian city to its roster

The new service to Cluj-Napoca will operate twice a week

Flydubai has announced new dates for the launch of flights to the city of Cluj-Napoca in Romania.

The route, first announced in February, was initially scheduled to begin in March, and Flydubai partner airline Emirates will codeshare on the route.

The airline will operate twice-weekly flights between Dubai International and Avram Iancu International Airport Cluj starting from 3 November 2021.

With this new route, Flydubai will serve the Romanian market with a total of 16 weekly flights. Its current daily service between Dubai and Bucharest is also set to increase to double daily operations from November.

Flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith said: “We first started operating to Bucharest with four flights a week in 2012. Since then, Flydubai has more than tripled its operations to the market as demand has grown for commercial and cargo traffic between Romania and the UAE. We look forward to further stimulating travel and trade flows in both directions.”

The carrier’s senior vice president Commercial Operations and E-commerce Jeyhun Efendi added that the twice-weekly service would allow the Romanian expatriate population in the UAE to travel home more easily and offer passengers from the market a more convenient option to visit Dubai during Expo 2020 Dubai.

Cluj-Napoca is the second-largest city in Romania and borders Hungary, Moldova and Ukraine.
