flydubai celebrates launch of Tirana route


flydubai recently marked its very first service between Dubai and Tirana, Albania.

The twice-weekly route is scheduled to run on Thursdays and Sundays. The Dubai-based carrier is now the first airline to provide direct airlinks from the UAE to Albania.

CEO, flydubai, Ghaith Al Ghaith enthused on the news: “We are pleased to be the first UAE-based airline to operate direct flights between Dubai and Tirana. We hope these direct airlinks support trade and tourism between the two countries in the future as travel restrictions begin to ease.  We look forward to seeing demand grow on this route and to increasing the frequency of our flights.”

I wish flydubai a great beginning here and a lot of success for all the parties that have been involved in completing this grand project.”
