flydubai recently launched its new, three-times-weekly flights to Kozhikode in Kerala, which seamlessly connects Dubai International (DXB) to Kozhikode Calicut International Airport (CCJ).
Following this launch, the carrier now offers 30 weekly flights to and from eight destinations in India.
CEO, flydubai, Ghaith Al Ghaith commented on the development: “As the first Dubai-based carrier to operate direct flights from Dubai to Kozhikode, we expect this route to be very popular for travellers from the UAE to the region. Similarly, passengers from Kozhikode now have easier access to popular destinations on the flydubai network as well as the Emirates network, providing easy access to more destinations when visiting family and friends.”
Meanwhile, senior vice president, commercial operations – UAE, GCC, Subcontinent and Africa, flydubai, Sudhir Sreedharan said: “With the commencement of our service to Kozhikode passengers will be able to connect to hundreds of destinations. flydubai’s professional and friendly service on board will offer an exceptional travel experience whether travelling for business or leisure.”
As part of the Emirates-flydubai partnership announced in 2017, Emirates Airline will codeshare on this route. For bookings under the codeshare, Emirates Airline passengers will receive complimentary meals and the standard Emirates checked baggage allowance on flights operated by flydubai in economy class.
