flydubai adds Batumi, Georgia to summer schedule

Flights to the Georgian destination will operate thrice-weekly between 12 May and 1 September 

Dubai-based carrier flydubai has relaunched flights to the coastal city of Batumi in Georgia after a temporary suspension as a result of the pandemic.

Commenting on the announcement, flydubai senior vice president of Commercial Operations and E-commerce Jeyhun Efendi said: “We’re pleased to relaunch our operations to Batumi, which has been a popular summer destination for our passengers in previous years. We remain focused on adding more options for travel this summer with the expectation that international travel restrictions will have eased. In addition, passengers will have the option to choose full packages from holidays by flydubai.”

Known as the ‘Pearl of the Black Sea’, Batumi is the second-largest city in Georgia, located in the country’s southwest region. Batumi is a popular tourist destination known for its beaches, restaurants, cafés and dancing fountains.

Emirates will codeshare on flights to Batumi, offering travellers more seamless connections through Dubai’s international aviation hub, with 155 destinations shared between the Emirates and flydubai networks, including Australia, China, Indian Ocean, Japan, South Asia and the United States.

With more countries beginning to open up, this summer will see the number of destinations on flydubai’s network reach 79 places in 46 countries.
