Flydubai resumes flights to Taif in Saudi Arabia

Fly direct to Saudi’s ‘City of Roses’ from Dubai International Airport

Dubai-based low-cost airline Flydubai has announced today that flights to Taif in Saudi Arabia will run from 15 April 2022.

Flights from Terminal 2, Dubai International (DXB) to Taif International Airport (TIF) will operate daily, though times have not yet been announced.

“Taif is located less than 100km east of Mecca in a valley on the eastern side of the Hejaz mountains,” says Flydubai. “The millennia old city is a favourite summer destination for those looking for the pleasant weather offered by the altitude. Due its cooler climate and fertile land, the region earned its title ‘the Garden of the Hejaz’.”

Known as the City of Roses, more than 900 rose farms produce over 300 million flowers every spring in Taif

flydubai has built a network of more than 95 destination in 50 countries served by a young fleet of 63 Boeing 737 aircraft. With the resumption of daily flights to Taif, flydubai’s network in Saudi Arabia has now grown to seven destinations including AlUla, Dammam, Jeddah, Madinah, Riyadh and Yanbu.
