Remarking on the development was chief commercial officer, flydubai, Hamad Obaidalla: “flydubai’s first flight to Turkey landed exactly 11 years ago in Istanbul. We have since grown our network to four unique destinations offering our passengers from the UAE and the region greater choice for the summer and around the year. We look forward to doubling the frequency of our operations to Ankara for the winter schedule as demand for travel continues to gradually grow.”

From October 2 onwards, the airline will increase its operations to Ankara to four-weekly flights.

Senior vice president, commercial operations and e-commerce, flydubai, Jeyhun Efendi said: “flydubai remains committed to opening up underserved markets and we have grown our network to 97 destinations. The launch of operations to Ankara will provide passengers from the UAE with direct airlinks to the Turkish capital for the first time. We look forward to seeing the demand for travel grow over the summer as more countries open up for international travel. The feedback and demand for both Bodrum and Trabzon have been very positive and we look forward to giving our passengers more options to discover Turkey with the start of flights to Ankara from the end of June.”

Ankara offers visitors incomparable history and culture, from Roman remains to Ottoman castles and citadels, art museums and beautiful green parks.
