Flydubai grows network to more than 80 destinations

The carrier has announced additional routes and resumed suspended services 

Flydubai has announced that it will grow its network in Russia to 11 destinations with the introduction of new services to Moscow Zhukovski International Airport from 12 May; Novosibirsk Tolmachevo International Airport from 28 May, and Perm International Airport from 2 June, while resuming operations to four more Russian cities in the same month.

The carrier also announced the resumption of previously suspended flights to Iran’s Bandar Abbas International Airport (BND) from 12 May and Mashhad International Airport from 13 May, growing its operations in Iran to five cities including Larr, Shiraz and Tehran.

Flydubai recently announced that it will be operating seasonal flights to Bodrum and Trabzon in Turkey, as well as Batumi in Georgia. 

Commenting on the announcement, flydubai CEO Ghaith Al Ghaith said: “It’s now 11 years since flydubai’s first flight to Russia. During this period, we have grown our network in Russia providing direct air links from key cities to the UAE; many of which are less than four hours flying time. We’ve made Dubai much more accessible and at the same time improved connectivity to more than 155 destinations from Dubai’s international aviation hub. Today, we’re pleased to see our operations take off once again as we continue to support trade and travel between the countries.”

Senior vice president for flydubai’s commercial operations and e-commerce Jeyhun Efendi added: “flydubai offers convenient, comfortable and reliable services to its passengers whether they choose to travel in Business Class or Economy Class. We recognise that since the pandemic it has not been possible for our customers to travel as much as they would have liked. The launch of these new points in Russia, along with the resumption of flights to a number of destinations on our network, will hopefully enable more passengers to travel this summer, with the expectation of countries easing up travel restrictions in line with the growing vaccination efforts around the network.”
