flydubai committed to boosting connectivity


On a mission to offer its customers more opportunities to travel, flydubai has been regularly announcing additional frequencies and unveiling adjusted flight times to improve connectivity.

Since July, the Dubai-based airline has been working to boost its operations and now serves 44 destinations across Africa, Europe, Central Asia, the GCC and Middle East, and the Indian Subcontinent.

flydubai’s first service to the Maldives touched down in Malé on October 27 and represented the start of four-times weekly services. Since the announcement of this new route, the airline has witnessed increasing demand for flights to this destination, and as a result, has announced that it will operate daily flights during the peak seasonal holiday period, from December 17 December until January 18, 2021. All of the destination’s 156 resorts closely adhere to stringent protective measures to guarantee the safety of tourists and staff.

Meanwhile, across its network, flydubai continues to increase the frequency of flights to a number of its destinations. On October 29, the carrier launched four flights a week to Sarajevo, while from 22 October, services to the Iraqi city of Najaf increased to three flights a week. Flights to Erbil will increase to six flights a week from November 9 and flydubai is now operating a twice-weekly service to Zanzibar.

Chief commercial officer, flydubai, Hamad Obaidalla declared: “We initially saw our passengers travelling to see their family and friends. As more countries have opened up for tourism, we are now seeing more passengers travel for leisure to enjoy their first holiday of the year.”

He concluded: “Whilst the pandemic has changed the way we travel we can be reassured that the safety measures taken at the airport, on board our flights and at the destination provide a safe environment to travel again with peace of mind.”
