Hamad Obaidalla, Chief Commercial Officer at fFydubai, said, “We are confident that the demand for travel will continue to increase as more countries gradually start to lift restrictions on international travel. Flydubai has restarted operations to 32 points around the network since June and we expect the number to steadily grow over the next few months. Dubai has put strong health and safety protocols in place which has encouraged well-informed passengers to travel, whether for business, leisure or to reunite with their loved ones.”
